In Memoriam: Bernard Gert (1934-2011)

We are deeply saddened to report the loss of Bernard Gert, who was Daniel P. Stone Professor of Intellectual and Moral Philosophy, Emeritus, Dartmouth College; Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry, Dartmouth Medical School; Research Professor, Department of Social Medicine, School of Medicine, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He was a key figure in our research group and he will be dearly missed.

Reading: Doris’s Attack on Character Traits

The next meeting of the philosophy & psychiatry research group will be on Thursday, Dec. 15 from 7:00-8:30 in room 208 of Caldwell. We’re going to discuss John Doris’s “Persons, Situations and Virtue Ethics.” Contact Dan if you’d like a copy of the article. We hope you can make it.
This will be our last meeting of 2011. It’s been a great year of discussions. We’ll reconvene in mid-January. We’ll send out an e-mail during the first week of January with the details of our next meeting.
Have a wonderful holiday season!
Dan & Gary
