Course
Monday 24th September - Monday 22nd October 2018

Philosophical ideas can have extensive and profound practical impact.That has been as true in American history as in any other. This series of lectures will examine several philosophical themes that underlie definitive aspects of American culture. The course will examine a different theme or concept each week, by discussing its intellectual origins and meaning, and explore how it has, in the past and today, influenced American society, politics, and culture generally. 

The five topics to be considered are exceptionalism, individualism, rights, pragmatism, and community. In the exploration of these themes major figures and documents in American philosophical and intellectual history from various periods, including Puritanism, the Enlightenment, Transcendentalism, Pragmatism, as well as current developments, will be discussed.


As stated above in the poster, courses start from Monday 24th September 2018 at the Voluntary Centre, 181, Melita Str., Valletta.

Public Talk:
Wednesday 3rd October 2018

Dr Albert Farrugia, a world -renowned academic scientist in the field of biological therapies will be delivering a talk entitled “Insights into the scientific process through the work of Popper, Kuhn and Feyerabend - Some examples from research and practice”. His insights into the subject originate from his personal interest in seeking an epistemological construct to his own career and profession.

In his talk, Dr Farrugia will review some of the major events leading to the popular image of science and assess them through the perspectives of the three 20th century philosophers of science: Popper, Kuhn and Feyerabend. Some of these perspectives will then be applied to currently established concepts of medical scientific practice, in particular the evolution of the concept of evidence-based medicine and its probable successor over the next decades.
The talk will be held on the 3rd of October, 2018, at the Volunteer Centre, 181, Melita Street, Valletta between 7.00 and 8.30pm.
