CANADIAN PROFESSOR TO ADDRESS PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE

    OSWEGO -- Dr. James Robert Brown of the University of Toronto will be the featured speaker Saturday, Oct. 4, at SUNY Oswego's 16th annual Warren Steinkraus Lectures on Human Ideals. He will speak on "Community of Science" at the program, which will begin at 2:15 p.m. in the east conference room of Sheldon Hall on campus.

    The program is open to the public free of charge.

    A member of the philosophy department at Toronto for 22 years, Brown edited the journal International Studies in the Philosophy of Science for five years. Among his books are "Who Rules in Science?" and "Smoke and Mirrors: How Science Reflects Reality."

    The annual lecture program is held in honor of the late Warren Steinkraus, a professor of philosophy at Oswego who died in 1990. He was active in several philosophy societies, founded the Gandhi-King Society and was associate editor of the journal Idealistic Studies.

    Access to the east conference room is through the doors on the east side of Sheldon Hall, where parking is also available.
