TALK ON "THE MEANING OF (GAY) MARRIAGE": As part of the 2013-2014 Philosophy Speaker Series, EMU welcomes John Corvino on Wednesday, September 25, 5:30 - 7 p.m., in room 310A in the Student Center. In his talk, Corvino, a Wayne State University professor, and author of What's Wrong with Homosexuality? and co-author of Debating Same-Sex Marriage, will explain some of the philosophical debates surrounding the issue and critique the "new natural law" position, increasingly popular among social conservatives. With over a dozen states permitting same-sex marriage, several others considering it, and dozens of others banning it, the issue remains controversial. Yet it also invites some important questions--about the role of the state, the needs of children and the meaning of marriage itself. For questions, please contact Peter Higgins at 487-0419 or email at phiggin1@emich.edu.
