SOU explores further the importance of disagreement in society

Once you get past the term, exploring the concept of "disagreement" gets complicated.

It's got a generally negative connotation, but it's also a key part of being human; on a planet with eight billion other people, we are BOUND to disagree with some of them at least some of the time.

Southern Oregon Universitychose Disagreement for its campus theme for the academic year, with speakers and activities set up to explore the subject matter.

Jennifer Lackey, a philosopher from Northwestern University, unfolds the role that disagreement plays in two areas: interactions between people online, and in the criminal justice.

She speaks on campus tonight (October 28, 7 PM, Science 151/Mask and vax required) and visits with the JX for a preview.
