Young Philosophers Lecture Series

The Young Philosophers Lecture Series showcases outstanding work by recent PhDs in philosophy.

Each fall, the DePauw University philosophy department and the Prindle Institute welcome 4 young philosophers (persons who have recently received their Ph.D. in philosophy) to give campus talks. Each young philosopher we invite workshops a research paper with other philosophers, DePauw philosophy faculty members and outside philosophy referees from other institutions.

Young philosophers also give an introductory-style presentation geared toward an audience with absolutely no background in philosophy. These talks will all take place on DePauw's campus. Can't make it to Greencastle to catch our series? Have no fear! We upload every talk to our YouTube channel.

Keep an eye on this page for information about how to apply to be one of our 2018 Young Philosophers!

You can find all of the previous Young Philosopher talks and additional ethics content on our YouTube channel.

 What is a young philosopher?

Your age is irrelevant to whether or not you are a young philosopher. By “young philosopher” we mean someone who has received their Ph.D. in philosophy within the last 6 years. We will also consider submissions from exceptional graduate students who reasonably expect to defend by the Spring or Summer at the end of the academic year.
