CCU professor to discuss 'ethics of belief'

Dennis Earl, assistant professor of philosophy at Coastal Carolina University, will lead a public discussion on "The Ethics of Belief" at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 15 in the Recital Hall at the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts. The lecture is free and open to the public.

The session will repeat on Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 4:30 p.m. at the Myrtle Beach Higher Education Center (Room 206) located at U.S. 17 Bypass and 79th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach.

Earl will discuss whether or not moral justification is necessary for one to believe in something. The sciences require evidence for anything to be considered correct; this session will explore the value of the same principle when applied to individual beliefs.

Earl joined the CCU faculty in 2002. He earned a bachelor's degree in philosophy from North Carolina State University and a Ph. D. in philosophy from the University of Colorado in Boulder.

The discussion is part of the Tea & Ethics Discussion series sponsored by the Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values. For more information, contact the center at 843-349-2440 or
