Levitt Center Hosts Affirmative Action Attorney

Richard Wasserstrom, professor emeritus of philosophy at University of California, Santa Cruz, and a member of the California State Bar, is the final speaker in the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center 2006-2007 lecture series. Titled "Inequality and Equity," the series has focused on an examination of the causes and consequences of inequality both in the U.S. and at the global level, with an emphasis on policy aimed at achieving equitable outcomes.

Wasserstrom will speak on Monday, April 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the Fillius Events Barn. The presentation, which is free and open to the public, is titled "Racism and Affirmative Action." Wasserstrom specializes in the ethics of affirmative action and has written widely on the topic as well as on a broad range of ethical issues including the morality of law, war and the right to die. He earned his law degree at Stanford University and a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Michigan.
