Westminster Student Presents Research at Philosophy Consortium

Ashley Williams, a Westminster College senior philosophy major from Washington, recently presented her research, "Embodiment and Destiny: A Review of Simone de Beauvoir's Concept of Biological Determinism in Destiny,'" at the Northeast Ohio Philosophy Consortium (NEOPC) held at John Carroll University.

 "In my presentation, I attempted to elucidate the feminist philosophy of Simone de Beauvoir, looking especially at how her philosophy plays a role in understanding the nature of female oppression," Williams said.  "I also attempted to investigate the notion of female acceptance of oppression and the role of biology in that acceptance."

 "The NEOPC was initially created to offer undergraduates in philosophy at colleges and universities in northeastern Ohio an opportunity to get together once a year and exchange and compare ideas," said Dr. David Goldberg, assistant professor of philosophy at Westminster.  "I was involved with its initial formation, and have attended every meeting since its inception.  This year I chaired two sessions."
