    How Living Well Matters In the Pursuit of Knowledge

    Incite Seminars

    1315 Walnut Street, Suite 320, Philadelphia, PA 19107
    • Saturday February 9th 2019, 9:00am to 1:00pm
    It can be very hard to figure out what’s true, or what’s right. But often we do know these things, and what we struggle with is how to live in accordance with what we know. In turn, those of among us who live wisely (Aristotle’s term for this kind of wisdom was “phronesis”) may not have good insight or competence in articulating why they believe and act as they do. Nevertheless, it is clear that thinking about what is true and right can help us to discover more and live better, and that working on living in line with our goals and our values can help us to better understand the world and our place in it.

    Facilitator: Lisa Miracchi is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. Her areas of specialization and competency include: mind, epistemology, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, action, language, philosophy of science, metaphysics, and feminism.
