April 20:  Why defend freedom of speech?

Consider an issue about which prevailing opinion in our society is true. Why would it be of value for someone to express a (false) dissenting view? We'll look to John Stuart Mill for a defense of1 even this sort of free expression.

Philosophy for Lunch happens every Wednesday from 12–1PM, Dickson Hall, 430.

What is P4L?  Students and professors close-read and discuss a few of the greatest passages in the history of philosophy. 

Who's invited?  No preparation or previous knowledge of philosophy is needed. Everyone is welcome!

Should I bring anything?  Bring a beverage, and if you're hungry, bring your actual lunch.
