Mini Conference: Gert Symposium
A Special Tribute to the Intellectual and Personal Legacy of Bernard Gert
The Association for Practical and Professional Ethics will hold a symposium to honor the professional contributions and personal leadership in ethics of our late friend and colleague Bernard Gert on March 03, 2013 at the 22nd Annual Meeting of the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics in San Antonio, Texas.
Bernard Gert (1934-2011), a long time APPE member, made major contributions to the field of practical and professional ethics, and was regarded by many as one of the 20th century’s most important moral philosophers. He was the Stone Professor of Intellectual and Moral Philosophy, Emeritus, and the longest-serving faculty member in the history of Dartmouth College. Dr. Gert was recognized as an expert in ethics and bioethics, a leading researcher on Thomas Hobbes, and founder of the ethics committee at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
