CONVERSATIONS AT THE CULVER WITH ERIC SCHWITZGEBEL
You're cordially not invited to join Inlandia Institute and Eric Schwitzgebel at the Culver. Just kidding, we're not jerks. Schwitzgebel's book, A Theory of Jerks and Other Philosophical Misadventures is funny and accessible.
Have you ever wondered about the essence of jerkitude? Asked whether your driverless car should kill you so that others may live? Considered the ethics of professional ethicists? Eric Schwitzgebel turns a philosopher's eye on these and other burning questions. A common theme is the ragged edge of the human intellect, where moral or philosophical reflection begins to turn against itself, lost among doubts and improbable conclusions.
Eric Schwitzgebel is Professor of Philosophy at UC Riverside. His most recent book is A Theory of Jerks and Other Philosophical Misadventures. He has published widely on self-knowledge, the nature of belief, moral psychology, the nature of consciousness, and science fiction.
“Imagine the nature-documentary voice-over: ‘Here we see the jerk in his natural environment. Notice how he subtly adjusts his dominance display to the Italian-restaurant situation.” —Eric Schwitzgebel
