The Distinguished Philosophers-in-Residence series is one of the Philosophy Program's signature projects. Each year, we bring a different distinguished senior philosopher to NYU Abu Dhabi for a weeklong visit, during which the philosopher-in-residence meets with students, attends one or more classes, delivers a public lecture, and participates in a faculty seminar on issues related to his or her work.
In early November the Philosophy Program was pleased to host Karen Bennett, Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University, as this year's Distinguished Philosopher-in-Residence. We are excited to announce that next year's Distinguished Philosopher-in-Residence will be Debra Satz, Vernon R. and Lysbeth Warren Anderson Dean of the School of Humanities and Sciences and Marta Sutton Weeks Professor of Ethics in Society at Stanford University. Professor Satz will be visiting in November 2020.
