Celebrating Howard Robinson

Friday, September 23, 2022, 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm

After 22 years at CEU, our beloved and esteemed Howard Robinson is retiring. To mark the event and show the contribution Howard’s thought has made to our own philosophising, the department is organising this one-day conference, in which several of our faculty will discuss issues related to Howard’s work. The event will end with a valedictory address by Howard.
