2022-2023 Events

C. Thi Ngyuen gave the 2023 Annual Lecture on Thursday, March 30th, 2023 in the Faculty Club Ballroom on ‘Value Capture’. 

Professor C. Thi Nguyen is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Utah. He is interested in the ways in which our rationality and agency are socially embedded – in how our ways of thinking and deciding are conditioned by features of social organization, community, technology, and art practices. He is also interested in the structures and nature of the interdependences we have with one another – and with our artifacts, practices, and institutions.
