You are invited to attend a three-panelist symposium, "Ethics, Pavement, and Traffic" this Thursday, October 4 at the Blumenfeld Center for Ethics at Georgia State University.

The symposium begins at 2:30 and features Lee Biola, President of Citizens for Progressive Transit, Benita Dodd of the Georgia Public Policy Foundation, and yours truly.

I will present the nuts and bolts of CARma's campaign to fight aggressive driving behaviors that cause a host of ills, including death, injury, economic havoc, environmental degradation, and civic decay. I will also locate CARma's educational philosophy in the context of Aristotle's cardinal virtues and recent Vatican documents as well as discuss how CARma's "citizenship on the road" campaign is consistent with aspects of Kant's principle of duty for duty's sake and two of Heidegger's insights on overcoming the problem of inauthentic being.

If curious, read the two documents below to learn more about the pragmatic aims and thinking behind the CARma campaign.

The event will start at 2:30 sharp at the University Center, room 465. Find that building on the campus map at building #34 at F3.

If you have logistical questions please contact, Dr. Andrew I Cohen at: 404-413-6111.
