Ravven Serves on Dissertation Committee
At the invitation of Professor Ursula Goldbaum, Heidi M. Ravven, professor of religious studies, was appointed to a dissertation committee of the Philosophy Department of Emory University. Ravven evaluated the dissertation, "Determinism, Freedom, and Ethics: Spinozistic Interventions in the Contemporary Discussions of Responsibility" of Christopher Ryszard Kluz, for the Ph.D. in philosophy.
The doctoral oral defense took place on April 26 at Emory University. Ravven (via Skype) joined the Emory Philosophy Department faculty in questioning Kluz in his oral defense of his thesis and in evaluating his grasp of Spinoza in his written dissertation.
