Upcoming Events

The Templeton Institute is excited to announce that we will be hosting David Chalmers, Professor of Philosophy and Neural Science and Co-Director of the Center for Mind, Brain, and Consciousness at New York University, for our signature Fall term event. Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 30th from 5:00 to 7:00 PM for his lecture, which will address the intersections of Philosophy, Artificial Intelligence, and related interdisciplinary topics. If you are interested in learning more about Prof. Chalmers's work in advance of his visit, please see his official website or Wikipedia pages.

This event emerged through a partnership between the Templeton Institute and Union's Department of Philosophy, and we are especially grateful to Prof. Marianna Bergamaschi Ganapini for helping us to bring such a world-renowned scholar to our campus. This Templeton Institute event will be held in conjunction with the Feigenbaum Forum's annual Fall lecture.

Templeton Institute (TI) Wednesdays

One of our signature events, TI Wednesdays, brings together faculty and staff to meet with their colleagues, get to know each other better, and discuss new ideas and potential integrative collaborations. Each TI Wednesday features a topic (e.g., Academic Honesty, Artificial Intelligence, etc.), and participants will be encouraged to spend at least part of the time discussing such topics together. From time to time, a brief “lightning talk” may be scheduled to stimulate conversation.
