A celebration of the philosophy majors graduating in January, and a special lecture by Simona Forti.

Lecture title: Totalitarianism, Old and New

Lecture description: Many different voices from all around are telling us that totalitarianism has returned, although it appears in different clothes. But what, we should ask, is a totalitarian regime? How is it supposed to act? What were its main features? And what of its past dynamic remains with us today?
