Please join the Law & Ethics Program as we welcome Professor Ruth Chang to give a talk on "Hard Choices." Professor Chang will discuss and criticize some common answers and then make a proposal of her own. Hard choices point the way to a different way of thinking about what it is to be rational and about how we should live.

This lecture is free and open to the public and will be immediately followed by a reception.

Ruth Chang is currently a Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University, New Brunswick and will be shortly taking up the Chair in Jurisprudence at Oxford University in Oxford, England where she hopes to create a multi-disciplinary research hub for decision-making and choice. She has a Ph.D. from Balliol College, Oxford and a J.D. from Harvard Law School and has held visiting fellowship positions at Harvard, Stanford, and Princeton. Her expertise concerns philosophical questions relating to the nature of value, value conflict, decision-making, rationality, the exercise of agency, and choice. Her work has been the subject of interviews by various media outlets in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Germany, Taiwan, Australia, Italy, Israel, Brazil, New Zealand, and Austria, and she has been a consultant or lecturer for institutions ranging from video gaming and pharmaceuticals to the CIA and World Bank.
