The Philosophy Department and the Humanities Center cordially invite you to a
public lecture by
Hilary Putnam (Harvard University)
Friday, 9. May, 5.00 PM - Popper Room
"Ethics Without Metaphysics"

Chair: Howard Robinson, CEU Philosophy Department

Hilary Putnam, one of America's most distinguished philosophers, surveys an
astonishingly wide range of issues and proposes a new, clear-cut approach to
philosophical questions -- a renewal of philosophy. He contests the view that
only science offers an appropriate model for philosophical inquiry. His
discussion of topics from artificial intelligence to natural selection, and
of reductive philosophical views derived from these models, identifies the
insuperable problems encountered when philosophy ignores the normative or
attempts to reduce it to something else.
