Philosophy Professor Presents at Conferences

Dr. Aaron Harper, Associate Professor of Philsophy and Religion, has presented his work at several conferences over the past academic year. This past December, he presented “Playing with Nietzsche: Play, Nihilism, and Value Creation” at a conference offered by both the International Association for the Philosophy of Sport and the Eastern Division of the American Philosophical Association. In April, he presented the same paper at the Rockford College Sports Studies Symposium.

At the Indiana Philosophical Association conference in March 2013, Dr. Harper presented “The Sincerity of Valuing: Honesty as a Nietzschean Value Standard.” He was also a guest lecturer for the moral philosophy honors seminar at Swathmore College.
