  • Image preview 3:30pm - 5:00pm: Moral Disagreement and the Importance of Meta-Ethics by Joel Martinez (Lewis & Clark College)
    According to moral cognitivists, moral judgments express beliefs and are, thus, truth-apt.  According to moral non-cognitivists, moral judgments do not express beliefs and, thus, are not truth-apt.  Instead, when one makes a moral judgment, one expresses an attitude that is more like an approval or dis-approval.   One common argument for moral non-cognitivism relies on the phenomenon of moral disagreement.   In this paper, I trace the history of the non-cognitivist argument from moral disagreement.  I also raise objections to this argument.   I argue that the non-cognitivist’s explanation of moral disagreement fails to explain how some moral disagreements are genuine disagreements.  Further, I argue that the cognitivist has the resources for a better explanation of moral disagreement than the non-cognitivist.  Since I do not claim to offer a decisive defense of cognitivism, I then consider what evidence would help us make progress in this debate.  I argue that recent, empirically minded philosophers mis-characterize the role that the natural and social sciences should play in solving this and other problems in meta-ethics.   Instead, Philosophy plays a distinctive role in solving meta-ethical disputes and cannot simply rely on the results of the sciences.

  • Image preview 7:00pm - 9:00pm: Movie Premiere - Sara’s Columbine
    Student Activities is proud to present the premiere of SARA’S COLUMBINE a film by Justin Zimmerman.

    SARA’S COLUMBINE is a documentary that focuses on one woman’s experience with the horrific 1999 school shooting, and how this historic encounter changed her during three distinct periods of her life. After she survived the massacre, Sara was featured on a multitude of media outlets, culminating in a Montel Williams Show ‘special’ just two days after the event. This footage, along with personal interviews conducted in 2005 and 2014 and hundreds of scanned photos, makes up SARA’S COLUMBINE, a powerful and inspirational personal journey.

    Fall of 2012 - that means hot apple cider, colorful leaves, and pumpkin picking! So in the spirit of the season, students went on an alternative pumpkin picking trip hosted by SEED, the Garden Collective, Bon Appétit, and Campus Living. This “alternative” pumpkin picking trip took participants out to Red Truck Farm, a local farm that supplies vegetables to Lewis & Clark’s dining hall! Farmer Jason Karnezis and Bon Appétit Fellow Claire Cummings talked about how to grow food in a sustainable way, why this type of food production can be challenging, and ways in which farmers (and urban gardeners) can overcome those challenges. Finally, instead of carving the pumpkins into spooky creatures we used them to prepare a delicious lunch to share together in the new Holmes Hall!
