On September 18, 2013, Thomas Pogge, Leitner Professor of Philosophy and International Affairs and the director of the global justice program at Yale University, presented "Designing for Human Rights: Food, Health, Climate". The lecture was part of the annual Alfred P. Stiernotte Lecture. Pogge has written extensively on Immanuel Kant, considered one of history's most important moral philosophers, and John Rawls, a leading American political thinker of the 20th century. He has also considered the accessibility of medications, global health, world poverty and questions of equality. Pogge will discuss how studying philosophy can involve being morally engaged with public and global matters. The Stiernotte lecture series is named in honor of the late Alfred P. Stiernotte, who initiated the teaching of philosophy at Quinnipiac more than 50 years ago, and has been funded largely from an endowment provided by his estate. The lecture is traditionally one of the first academic events of the year.
