Philosophy Department to host speaker on applied philosophy
M. Lucille Kinlein, founder and director of the Institute of Kinlein, will give a presentation, "Philosophy Applied in Life," from noon to 1:15 p.m. Thursday, April 12, in the 3M Auditorium of Owens Science Hall.
Kinlein founded a professional practice in the 1970s that her clients call "kinleining," and she shows why and how philosophy must be not merely studied but lived. Kinlein's theories work from the premise that at conception each person has the power to take action in living life on a day-to-day basis, in answering questions such as: How can you figure out what to do with your life? What kind of career should you seek? When is it time to begin or end a serious relationship? How should you deal with a family member when you have disagreements? How can you maintain your uniqueness? Kinlein will show how philosophy is used to answer concrete questions such as these.
The UST Philosophy Department sponsors the presentation. For more information, contact Dr. Matthew Kent, (651) 962-53992.
