2018-19 Tanner Lecture on Human Values: Concepts and Persons

Dr. Michael Lambek, University of Toronto Scarborough
Wednesday, January 30, 2019
4:00-6:00 PM
Ballroom Michigan League Map
The 2018-2019 Tanner Lecture at the University of Michigan will be given by prominent anthropology professor Michael Lambek. This year's Tanner Lecture will discuss the consideration of conceptual error and its application towards both philosophy and anthropology. In addition, Lambek will reflect on the duality of metapersons—how they are simultaneously concepts and persons—and common category mistakes such as the simplification of concepts.

Following the lecture on Wednesday, Professor Lambek will participate in Thursday's symposium with Professor Joel Robbins (University of Cambridge), Professor Jonathan Lear (University of Chicago), and Professor Sherry Ortner (University of California, Los Angeles).

This event is free and open to the public.
