Ethics with Hungry Bodies Bookmark and Share

Jan 31

4:30 p.m. @ Johnson Auditorium

Sarah Worth, professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy at Furman University, will outline an ethical perspective based on the vision of human beings as hungry bodies and not just rational minds. Worth will discuss historical attitudes of the guest-host relationship as it relates to hospitality that was used to develop the moral lives of citizens, as well as the ways in which modern hospitality can help us better understand others in order to meet their needs. Worth earned her Ph.D. from the University at Buffalo (SUNY) and has a research and teaching focus on aesthetics, philosophy of literature and narrative, and the philosophy of food. At Furman, she regularly teaches courses on the philosophy of food and taste and has recently led student groups overseas for an experiential course called Slow Food: Italy Style.
