Distinguished Speaker Series: Jeffrey P. Bishop, MD, PhD: "Neuroscience, Virtue, and Vice"
Date: Thursday, April 19
Location: Brandywine Hall, Room 033, 709 S. New Street
This talk will explore some of the recent literature in the neuroscience of morality. It will show that often the claims made by neuroscientific research into morality are political in origin. This political dimension sometimes shapes the kinds of claims made about the neuroscience of prosocial and antisocial behavior, and opens the possibility of the neuroscientific control of behavior.
Dr. Jeffrey P. Bishop is a social and moral philosopher, teaching medical ethics and philosophy at Saint Louis University. He is also a physician. Prof. Bishop holds the Tenet Endowed Chair in Health Care Ethics and is the Director of the Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics.

Talking Black in America
“The status of African -American speech has been controversial for more than a half-century now, suffering from persistent public misunderstanding, linguistic profiling, and language-based discrimination. We wanted to address that and, on a fundamental level, make clear that understanding African-American speech is absolutely critical to understanding the way we talk today.” -Walt Wolfram, www.talkingblackinamerica.org.
