Coastal's Coffee & Ethics tackles the ethics of consumerism

  Dennis Earl  
Coastal Carolina University professor Dennis Earl will lead a discussion titled "Buying into Money: Ethical Issues of Consumerism" on Tuesday, March 11 at 5:30 p.m. at Croissants Bakery/Café in Myrtle Beach. The event is free and open to the public.

The dialogue is part of the Coffee & Ethics series sponsored by Coastal's Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values. Croissants is located at 3751 Grissom Parkway at Beach First Center (at the intersection of 38th Avenue North and Grissom Parkway).

Earl will examine the effects of consumerism on American life and culture from numerous perspectives (financial, social, ecological) to investigate its ethical value.

An assistant professor of philosophy at Coastal, Earl earned a doctorate at the University of Colorado. His major areas of study include: metaphysics, epistemology, applied ethics and the history of modern philosophy. Previously, Earl led a controversial discussion entitled "Is Wal-mart the Right Model for America?" with professor Kay Keels.
