Each year, Urbana University sponsors a visiting Swedenborg Scholar to come to the university and offer a public talk and to teach. This year’s visiting professor, was Dr. Marcy Latta of Bryn Athyn College. Members of the Urbana, Glendale and Montgomery Churches were in attendence.
Dr. Latta’s talk was on expanding Kant’s Ethics to include compassion; seeing ourselves in others. Dr. Latta will also deliver the talk to inmates in prison who are earning college credit through Urbana.
“Dr. Latta teaches in the areas of philosophy and writing. Her area of specialization lies in Kant’s ethics. Her research and teaching interests focus on applied ethics, moral perception, and the contribution that literature can make to moral philosophy. Prior to her arrival at Bryn Athyn College, Dr. Latta taught at the University of Pennsylvania.” –www.brynathyn.edu
