my son, the philosopher

Ben is presenting a paper on 'Environmental Ethics' at a student philosophy conference, at Pacific University in Forest Grove this weekend.

There he is, in the schedule, in the 8:00-9:30 sessions:

    • L. Pippa Callanan (Portland State University), "Intrinsic Value for the Environmental Pragmatist"
    • Commentator: Jackie Burgett (Pacific University)
    • Ben Lavine (Portland State Univeristy), "On Weighting Humanity in Utilitarian Calculus"
    • Commentator: Bieu Bu Tran (University of Connecticut)

He's come a long way from his days working for 'Hot Dog On A Stick'. Maybe at his next presentation they'll spell 'university' correctly.
