This Week on Philosophy Talk
The Deep Dive
On February 11, Debra and Ken will speak to Christopher Freeburg from the University of Illinois about James Baldwin. This month is, of course, Black History Month, and we often try to schedule programs in February that question our assumptions about African-American history, politics, and culture.

What does it mean to take responsibility for one’s scientific or technological innovations? And what role should university educators play in ensuring that no new monsters are unleashed onto the world?
