Carlos at IASH again

Carlos Cortissoz's presentation in the IASH Fellows' speaker series, "Politics of the Soul: Passions, Factions, Akrasia," has been anticipated for this coming Wednesday, March 13.

Departing from Plato's "City-Soul Analogy" Cortissoz will explore a notion of the individual mind as a political structure, that is, as a web of mental states in a political relation with each other and with the collective mental states they are linked to. Cortissoz shows how this understanding sheds light on common problems in moral psychology such as the problem of akrasia or weakness of the will. 12:00pm, IASH Conference Room (LN 1106)
