Annual Semrad Lecture in Non-Western Thought
Topic: “A Buddhist Perspective on the Environment: Karuṇā and Pratītyasamutpāda”
Speaker: Dr. Graham Priest, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, City University of New York, Graduate Center
Dr. Priest has published in nearly every leading logic and philosophy journal. At the last count, he had published approximately 240 scholarly articles. He has also published six monographs (mostly with Oxford University Press), as well as a number of edited collections. Much of his work has been in logic, especially non-classical logic, and related areas. He is perhaps best known for his work on dialetheism, the view that some contradictions are true. However, he has also published widely in many other areas, such as metaphysics, Buddhist philosophy, and the history of philosophy, both East and West.
