Jon Ellis, director of the Center for Public Philosophy at UC Santa Cruz, will present a lecture entitled "Partisan Reasoning and Public Philosophy."

Political discourse in the United States is devolving. From social media to Washington D.C., closed-mindedness, confirmation bias, and rationalization are undermining the possibility for constructive dialogue. 

Please join us for a presentation and conversation to learn how recent initiatives in the growing field of public philosophy seek to teach us all—especially the next generations—how to think and talk to one another differently.
