Misleading and Morality

Most people find it natural to think that one who merely misleads is doing something not quite as bad as someone who outright lies.  Dr. Saul will explore some difficult and politically interesting cases to argue that this is wrong, but that there are far more complicated distinctions to be drawn between various different sorts of deception. 


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.
