York College 

A different look at injustice 

York College will host a talk by a Texas A&M philosophy professor who argues that injustices should be approached in the same way as illnesses at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, in Weinstock Lecture Hall, Willman Business Center.  

The talk by Gregory Pappas, "An Inter-American Approach to the Problems of Injustice," is open to the public free of charge.  

 Like cancer, injustice is complex, caused and affected by multiple environmental factors and conditions and tends to stay hidden even as it evolves, according to Pappas. This calls for a very rich and demanding view of the sort of character of the inquirers, their interaction and the disciplines that are needed to ameliorate injustices.  

Pappas will propose ideas about how to begin and approach conversations about injustice, discuss what counts as “experiential resources” and offer general principles and virtues needed for effective academic research.
