Terry Pinkard Receives the Guang Hua; Authors New Book on Hegel's Naturalism
January 12, 2012
Terry Pinkard, University Professor of Philosophy, has received Fudan University's Guang-Hua award for distinguished scholarship. After participating in a formal award ceremony at the Shanghai university, Professor Pinkard kicked off Fudan's brand-new public lecture series with five talks on Hegel. Photos of these events, which took place in December 2011, can be seen below.
In addition to this, Professor Pinkard has just added to his already impressive publishing record with a new book. In Hegel's Naturalism: Mind, Nature, and the Final Ends of Life. (Oxford University Press 2011) he explores Hegel's Aristotelian conception of naturalism, and argues that this conception “provides the framework for explaining how we are both natural organisms and also practically minded (self-determining, rationally responsive, reason-giving) beings.” Pinkard traces the social, political, and intellectual implications of this approach to human beings.
Congratulations (??), Terry!
