Come watch my talk on grief

It's open to the public over Zoom. Here's the info:

Friday, March 10th

12:00-12:45 EST

Ricky Mouser – Indiana University Bloomington

“Surviving and Thriving”

Michael Cholbi’s recent account of grief explains how grief can be good for us survivors by affording us self-knowledge. By painfully reckoning with the loss of those in whom we have invested our practical identities, we can reconstruct a deeper understanding of who we will be going forward. I extend Cholbi’s account by noting how grief can be good for those we grieve for as well. To show how, I highlight an ambiguity in the standard analysis of welfare as how your life goes for you to argue that thriving requires surviving biographically, but not biologically.

I'd love to see you there.
