Toward a Philosophical Theory of Practice

The study of human practice is a growing field among anthropologists, philosophers, social and culture theorists, and ethnologists.  Practice theorists cover a wide range of topics from subjectivity, embodiment, and knowledge, to power and social organization.  In this free public lecture, Dr. Vincent Wargo, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, will explore why practice is important for contemporary philosophy and what contributions philosophers have made over the years.  He will trace practice back to its origins in Aristotelian philosophy, and forward to 20th century thinkers like Heidegger, Wittgenstein and others.
