The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Humanities Center at Cuyahoga Community College is pleased to welcome a pair of world-class scholars to our Eastern Campus for a dialogue on the question, “Is the natural world all there is?” Dr. Louise Antony, who will defend the affirmative position, is a professor of philosophy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is a former president of the Eastern Division of the American Philosophical Association and the author or editor of numerous books and essays, including Philosophers without Gods: Meditations on Atheism and the Secular Life. Her interlocutor, Dr. Michael Rea, is the Rev. John A. O’Brien Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame. His many published works include The Oxford Handbook of Philosophical Theology and World without Design: The Ontological Consequences of Naturalism. This event will be a conversation rather than a debate. Following an overview of each speaker’s position, Dr. Antony and Dr. Rea will engage in a moderated conversation, which will include opportunities for audience members to ask questions.

This event is sponsored by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Humanities Center, Cuyahoga Community College and is free and open to the public.
