      There is a continuous lineage of design innovation and improvement from the origin of life over three billion years ago to the latest advances in the arts and technology. We are now entering a new phase, where we harness the exploratory power of evolution to do the heavy lifting for us. Will we still need—or be—intelligent creators in the future?

    "A Magician's View of Consciousness," Friday, 4-6pm Whittenburger Auditorium, IMU
      Consciousness seems to many people to be a magical phenomenon, and in one sense it is: it is made possible by a bag of physical tricks that fool us into thinking our experience has properties it doesn’t have. There is great resistance to this message, this “unmasking” of consciousness. Similarly, many people prefer to remain mystified by stage magic; they don’t want to be shown how the effects are achieved, fearing that the truth will be deeply disappointing. Do not attend this lecture if you prefer to keep consciousness mysterious.

    Tristram McPherson (Ohio State University)
    "Abstract: Arguing for ethical veganism: the easy part and the hard part"
      In this talk I discuss what I take to be the most compelling argument for ethical veganism: the thesis that other things being equal we should not consume or otherwise use animal products. The argument for this conclusion divides into two parts. The first is an argument that almost all of the animal products that we consume are produced wrongfully, because of the massive animal suffering and death this production involves. The second is an argument that in light of this we should not use animal products, because doing so involves us in objectionable complicity with their wrongful production. I suggest that the first argument is highly compelling, while the second involves significant complications, and conclude with some suggestions about how philosophical arguments like this one should affect our lives.
