Your rights vs. my freedoms: a Philosophers Café
This month’s edition of Philosophers Café convenes from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday (Oct. 14) at Kavarna coffeehouse in downtown Green Bay. David Duquette, professor and associate dean at St. Norbert College, will help participants ponder the conflicts arising from the intersection of rights and freedoms. (Think of the Kentucky clerk controversy, or any number of current hot topics, to get some idea of the issues to address.) Duquette will look at the difference between positive rights and freedoms (entitlements “to”) and negative rights and freedoms (protections “from”). As always, the monthly sessions organized by the UW-Green Bay Philosophy faculty are free and open to the public.
