USF Lecture Examines Study Of Human Practice

The University of Saint Francis Department of Philosophy and Theology presents a free lecture titled “Towards a Philosophical Theory of Practice” on Wednesday, April 5 at 7 p.m. in USF’s Brookside Ballroom, 2701 Spring Street.

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. This lecture will explore why practice is important for contemporary philosophy and what contributions philosophers have made over the years.

Dr. Vincent Wargo, assistant professor of philosophy, will trace practice back to its origins in Aristotelian philosophy and forward to 20th century thinkers like Heidegger, Wittgenstein and others.

This lecture is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Angie Springer,
