Philosophy Distinguished Lecture Series

The Distinguished Lecture in Philosophy Series is designed to bring to Weber State scholars whose research bridges the gap between philosophy and other disciplines. Its goals are to demonstrate to both our students and the community at large how various fields of study can be mutually reinforcing, as well as to expose the community to central philosophical questions and topics, presented by an expert in the field.
