The aim is to introduce students to graduate level work and expose them to the latest research. Each APS focuses on one philosophical topic and culminates into a week-long engagement with a distinguished philosopher, who will be presenting their latest research on the topic. Students who do not have the opportunity to take high-level courses at their own institutions are especially encouraged to apply. 

Topic

The topic of this year’s APS is Philosophy&Film, and the distinguished guest is Professor Robert Pippin from the University of Chicago; he has contributed to the study of Kant, Hegel, modernism, political philosophy, self-consciousness, freedom, but also literature and philosophy and film and philosophy. Robert Pippin will give five lectures with the title: Film as a Moving Image of Skepticism.
