Location: Boulder, Colorado (or on Zoom, if you can’t host the event in person in Boulder)

Deadline: March 1 (start of examination of applications)
Description: The Colorado Summer Seminar in Philosophy is for exceptional advanced undergraduate students considering graduate studies in Philosophy. The aim is to introduce students to the atmosphere of a college-level seminar, giving them the opportunity to explore their abilities and philosophical interests before embarking on a graduate program. The subject of the 2022 summer seminar is “Parts and Wholes”. Each class session will focus on a topic related to that topic, understood broadly to include issues involving individuals and groups. Depending on your perspective, the seminar will either be taught as a team by at least ten individual faculty members, or taught from start to finish by a single entity consisting of at least ten faculty members. Either way, it will cover a variety of historical and contemporary issues. Topics likely to be covered include:

  • Plato on justice in the individual and in the city
  • Marx on individual and class interests
  • The metaphysics of parts and wholes
  • The moral mathematics of parts and wholes
  • The aesthetics of parts and wholes
  • Quantum mechanics and entanglement
  • The ethics of racial profiling
  • The sorite paradox
  • Intergenerational ethics
  • The existence and nature of sets
  • Group spirits
  • Social epistemology
  • Parties, wholes and well-being

Class sessions will be complemented by a variety of extracurricular events, including discussions on additional topics and workshops on topics such as Women in Philosophy and How to Apply for Graduate Studies.
