Jennifer Saul
Department of Philosophy
University of Sheffield, UK

Generics Don't Essentialise People; People Essentialise People

In some circles generic terms (nouns or phrases that refer to a whole class) are regarded as especially pernicious politically.  Dr. Saul will consider this view and argue against it.


This series of talks was made possible by a generous gift from the estate of Dr. Brian F. Rudrick. Shortly before his untimely death, the Department of Philosophy named Dr. Rudrick as official “friend of the department” because of his inspiring example of lifelong learning and for demonstrating for our students how one can make a philosophical contribution to professional and public life, whatever career one chooses.
