In Honor of Dr. Patricia Curd, an Ancient Philosopher
Welcome to PatFest...Patapalooza...the PatBash...Call it what you will, this series features lectures in honor of Dr. Patricia Curd - a luminary in the field of ancient philosophy who retired from Purdue last spring (2019). Over two days, 26-27 April 2019, a group of preeminent scholars of ancient philosophy gathered here in West Lafayette, IN, to give talks in honor of Dr. Curd's work and career.
The conference, organized and hosted by Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Dept. of Philosophy at Purdue Dr. Michael Augustin, was exceptional. The weather cooperated, the talks were brilliant, and the admiration and camaraderie on display demonstrated what a great influence, interlocutor, and friend Dr. Curd has been to so many over the years.
In this episode, Michael and Matthew look back on the conference, preview the talks, and share some loving anecdotes about Dr. Curd. We will begin posting the full lectures next Friday (13 March 2020).
