WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 1990

The Claremont Philosophy Colloquium and the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum are pleased to sponsor a panel discussion on the topic "Philosophy in Claremont: Past, Present, and Future." A number of Claremont's best-known philosophers from a wide variety of backgrounds will be discussing the role Claremont has played, is playing, and will play in the development and evolution of philosophical ideas.

The panel includes Claremont McKenna professors Steve Davis, who received his doctorate from the Claremont Graduate School, and Myra Moss, who received her B.A. from Pomona College. Pomona College professors Frederick Sontag, who has been teaching at Pomona since 1952, and Paul Hurley, who is a relatively new member of the Claremont community, will also be participating. From Scripps College we welcome Prof. Dion Scott-Kakures, who graduated from CMC in 1979. Finally Kimberly McDonald, a senior at CMC who will be attending graduate school next year, will present her ideas regarding philosophy in Claremont.

The reception at 5:30 will be followed by a 6:00 dinner. The evening's discussion begins at 6:45. Each participant will make a five- to eight-minute presentation. The presentations will be followed by comments and questions from the audience.

This promises to be an interesting and exciting evening, so be sure to return the enclosed reservation form to the Athenaeum as soon as possible.
