UA Downtown Lecture Series – ‘Two Ancient Philosophers on Why Death is No Evil’

November 4, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

Ancient philosophers Plato and Epicurus disagreed on whether the soul is immortal, yet neither thought death is to be feared. Instead, both argued that death gives us a reason to live a meaningful life. Rachana Kamtekar, associate professor in the Department of Philosophy, explores these views and their relevance today.

This lecture is part of the UA College of Social and Behavioral Sciences’ Downtown Lecture Series on “immortality.”
