Brown Bag to focus on transformative experiences

L.A. Paul, Eugene Falk Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina and Professorial Fellow at the University of St. Andrews, is speaking April 25 at 12 p.m. in McEwen Hall Room G24.

Dr. Paul will talk about her book, “Transformative Experience,” which includes her experiences such as going to war, having a baby, being spiritually reborn, betraying a lover, emigrating to a new country, all of which can be transformative.

She will discuss the nature of transformative experience, and show how exploring its epistemic structure can help us to understand the special and distinctive ways that new experiences can form and change people, and how it relates to how people make life choices, both big and small.

The event is free and open to the public.
