Is human nature good or evil? How did Confucianism, originally an ethical system, later come to grips with deeper theoretical questions about human nature and the physical universe? Professor Hye-Kyung Kim, from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, will address these questions in a philosophy colloquium at 11:45 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, in Room 301, Aquinas Hall. Her presentation will be “Confucianism and Human Nature.”

Kim, a native of Korea, has studied at Ewha Woman’s University in Seoul, at the National University of Athens and at Marquette University where she recently completed her Ph.D. with a dissertation on Aristotle. Her interests lie both in Asian philosophy and in Western philosophy, especially ancient Greek and medieval philosophy.

Everyone interested is invited to attend. Refreshments will be served.
