Perez's discussion will be from her Mellon Banquet title: "Does Empirical Methodology Have a Place in Academic Philosophy?  A Case Study

Come this Thursday to learn more about Martha's work at this disciplinary intersection and talkd about the implications of empirical methods on the way we do philosophy.

During her time at Carleton, Martha pursued both philosophical and psychological methods to a series of questions in ethics and epistemology, and was interested in the distinct contributions and claims that each di9scipline made.  While at Rice pursuing a Master's in philosophy, she explored the relationship between these approaches still further.
