Event Details

Inaugural Lecture of the Provost Lecture Series

First published in 1899, William James' book Talks to Teachers has remained influential for more than a century because of James' unique insights as a psychologist, philosopher, and beloved teacher at Harvard. Dr. Norris Frederick, James A. Jones Chair of Philosophy and Religion at Queens, will discuss the relevance of the book today for pedagogy and the teaching life.

Dr. Frederick is a longtime professor at Queens who has also served as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and as Vice President for Academic Affairs. His major interests in teaching philosophy include ethics, the philosophy of religion, and philosophy as a way of life (including existentialism and pragmatism). The recipient of three teaching awards from Queens, he has published and lectured both nationally and locally on the thought and life of William James.
