Professor Lee received her doctorate from Harvard University and taught at the University of Illinois at Chicago before joining the CU Boulder faculty.&nbsp;An expert on ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, she is the author of "Epistemology after Protagoras: Responses to Relativism in Plato, Aristotle, and Democritus" (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 2005). The book explores the responses to relativism found in Plato, Aristotle, and Democritus, ranging from Plato's sophisticated reformulation of relativism as a theory of knowledge, his refutation of relativism, and Aristotle's discussion of the skeptical consequences of Protagoras's ideas, to Democritus's incorporation of some modified Protagoras ideas in his theory of knowledge and perception.&nbsp;Professor Lee's lecture will draw on her current research, a book manuscript on Aristotle's ethics and political philosophy called "Aristotle's Theory of Justice." The aim of this book is to argue that, contrary to a widespread understanding of Aristotle, justice is the central virtue in his ethics and the central guiding principle in his political philosophy. Justice is an ideal in Aristotle's theory of the virtues of character, which shows how deeply he is committed to the idea that man is a 'political animal.' Furthermore, justice is also the concept from which he derives the notion of obligations and what we would call duties towards other people. The book focuses on his principles of justice and his conception of the common good, and shows how it shapes his conception of virtue, morality, and the good life.</p> Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead Wed, 31 Oct 2012 14:34:01 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-11-01-dia-de-los-muertos-day-of-the-dead https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-11-01-dia-de-los-muertos-day-of-the-dead <p><em>Thursday, November 1, 2012 6:00 PM</em></p><p class="MsoNormal">Dia de los muertos is a&nbsp;gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.&nbsp;We will be serving soup and a faculty member will be presenting the significance of Dia de los Muertos.
