Annual Philosophy Roundtable: Emerson’s ‘The American Scholar’
Wednesday, March 18, the Department of Philosophy and Religion hosted a seminar on Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay, “The American Scholar”. The seminar was co-led by Thomas May and Matthew Holtzman, both Tutors at St. John’s Annapolis. Holtzman was Visiting Assistant Professor at WC from 2010-2013 until returning to teach at his undergraduate alma mater. We are pleased to have him return to WC. The lively and well-attended discussion was 4-6 p.m. in the Sophie Kerr Room on the second floor of the Miller Library. The seminar unfolds in the ‘St. John’s (Annapolis)’ style of using two co-leaders prompting inquiry.
