Parr Center Presents: Meghan Sullivan (Notre Dame)

February 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Meghan Sullivan, Notre Dame University

February 21, 2024 | 5:30PM | Chapman 201


“Loving Strangers”

The talk will offer a fresh look at Good Samaritans and the moral concepts that guide them. Are Good Samaritans really that good? And do the rest of us have any reason to love complete strangers? How would this change our relationships and our politics?


Meghan Sullivan is the Wilsey Family Collegiate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.  She serves as Director of the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study and the University Ethics Initiative. Sullivan founded Notre Dame’s God and the Good Life course. Her research and teaching projects have been discussed in The New Yorker, Vulture, The New York Times, Vogue, The Atlantic, and the Chronicle of Higher Education. Sullivan has published two books, as well as articles in Ethics, Nous, and Philosophical Studies. She serves as a co-editor for Nous. She is currently working on her third book, which considers the moral and political significance of love of strangers.


This event is free and open to the public, and will run for approximately 90 minutes. Light refreshments will be served after Q&A and discussion.
