Professor Paul Russell, Department of Philosophy at the University of British Columbia, will present a talk titled "Irreligion and Hume's Treatise" on Wednesday, September 1, 2004, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in Friends 207.

Sponsored by the Ithaca College Department of Philosophy and Religion, the talk will attempt to speak to issues relevant to 17th-century philosophy (in terms of influences on Hume) as well as the philosophy of religion, moral philosophy, and free will. The talk will be geared for a general audience and is designed to help make it relevant to several of the seminars that the Philosophy and Religion department at Ithaca College is offering this term.
