Who: Scott A. Hershovitz, Thomas G. and Mabel Long Professor of Law, University of Michigan on “Nasty, Brutish and Short: Adventures in Philosophy with My Kids”
Location: Peabody Hall, Room 115
Hershovitz is director of the Law and Ethics Program and professor of law and philosophy at the University of Michigan. He is the author of “Nasty, Brutish and Short: Adventures in Philosophy with My Kids,” an NPR Best Book of 2022. The book uses deft storytelling and a sharp wit to show what philosophy is; why kids are the best philosophers of all; and how they can teach us to puzzle through revenge, rights, consciousness, the size of the universe and other daunting mysteries most grown-ups learn to ignore.
