Chautauqua Lecture on experimental philosophy March 29

The Schreiner University Robert P. Hallman Chautauqua Lecture Series will present “Experimental Philosophy: Notions of Intentional Action” on Monday, March 29 at 7 p.m. in the ballroom of the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center. Dr. Adam Feltz, assistant professor of philosophy at Schreiner, will speak. He will be aided by two students, Maegan Harris, a junior from Austin, and Ashley Perez, a junior from San Antonio.

“Judging whether one did something intentionally is important for a variety of real-world judgments from blaming people for accidental shootings to judgments in court cases. But what if people have predictably different intentionality judgments based on things such as personality? For example, could it be the case that some people are convicted of murder because the jury is composed of extraverts?” Feltz said.

All Chautauqua events are free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Martha York at the Schreiner University Center for Innovative Learning 830-792-7352 or at, or visit the Web site.
