Chicago, IL  60610 (specific address will be emailed upon registration)
Professor Amy Kind  

Join Professor Amy Kind and the CMCAA Chicago Chapter for an evening to hear about The Skill of Imagination. Talk about the skills associated with a liberal arts education often tends to focus on critical thinking. But just as important as one’s analytic skills are one’s imaginative skills. As science fiction writer Ursula K. Le Guin has famously said, imagination is “an essential tool of the mind, a fundamental way of thinking, an indispensable means of becoming and remaining human.”

Professor Kind will discuss her research on imagination and the important role that the skill of imagination can play in helping us to navigate and shape our futures.

Amy Kind, the Russell K. Pitzer Professor of Philosophy, joined the CMC faculty in 1997. Currently the Director of the Gould Center for Humanistic Studies, she has previously served as Chair of the Department of Philosophy (2009 - 2012) and Associate Dean of the Faculty (2005 - 2008). At CMC, she teaches classes in philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and logic. Her research interests lie broadly in the philosophy of mind, though most of her published work has concerned issues relating either to the imagination or to phenomenal consciousness.

Appetizers and refreshments will be served.
