Professor Linda Trinkaus Zagzebski

The Department of Philosophy will host the 2020  Donnellan Lectures in Philosophy March 31st & April 1st 2022.

Professor Linda Trinkaus Zagzebski. Zagzebski is George Lynn Cross Research Professor emerita and Kingfisher College Chair of the Philosophy of Religion and Ethics emerita at the University of Oklahoma.

She will be developing the central theme of her latest book, The Two Greatest Ideas. The idea that the human mind can grasp the universe and the idea that the human mind can grasp itself have had an uneasy relationship in Western history, leading to both intellectual confusion and moral conflict. She will review that history and propose a third great idea that might help us move forward.
