Abstract:
Among its many revolutions, the digital age has altered our relationship to visual information -- how we take it in and process it, as well as our expectations of it. What are the consequences of this for the experience and understanding of art?

The Ethics Project: Teaching Ethics through High-Stakes Student Entrepreneurship

The Freedom Center and the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship present Jason Brennan (Georgetown University).

When: Tuesday, 4/3/2018, 2:00-3:30pm

Location: Silver and Sage room in Old Main

Abstract: If we want to create principled leaders, we must let students lead. In this talk, I discuss “The Ethics Project,” a semester-long entrepreneurial activity I conduct at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business, in which students must make real-life decisions and then reflect upon their decisions. The Ethics Project asks students to think of something good to do, something that adds value to the world, and then do it. Rather than role-playing through case studies, students live through real-life situations of their own making. The Ethics Project trains students to integrate ethical principles into strategic decision-making, and helps them discover and overcome their own moral limitations. The Ethics Project can be integrated into most business classes.

Light food will be served.

In nature, adaptable strategies are incorporated into successful organisms through the relentless and value neutral process of natural selection. Delegates of the Forum will meet to address the challenge of understanding what makes adaptable systems work and to develop a system for approximating the adaptability of a given system of action, organization, or institution. The forum will utilize an open agenda based on the successful collaborative model used by the late Dr. Rafe Sagrin, author of "Learning from the Octopus: How Secrets From Nature Can Help Us Fight Terrorist Attacks, Natural Disasters, and Disease," in developing his "Natural Security " framework. The fifteen delegates represent business leaders, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders in economics, philosophy, psychology, cognitive science and other relevant knowledge domains and areas of expertise. The Forum on Adaptable Systems is a joint endeavor of the Center for the Philosophy of Freedom and the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship and will be held in October at Biopsphere 2. This project was made possible through the support of a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
