Dr. Milton Fisk, az Indiana Egyetem (USA) emeritus professzorának díszdoktori avatása a Debreceni Egyetemen 2007. június 2.


Milton Fisk was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky. Following the example of both of his parents, he became an academic. He received a BS in chemistry from Notre Dame and a PhD in philosophy from Yale. Prior to coming to Indiana University in Bloomington, he held faculty positions at Notre Dame and at Yale. He is the author of a number of books, including Nature and Necessity (1973), Ethics and Society (1980), The State and Justice (1989), and Toward a Healthy Society (2000).

Early in his career, he concentrated on a realist interpretation of physical science, which led him to develop a theory of causality based on a notion of natural necessity. An engagement with movements for social change led to his writing on issues in social philosophy and in political morality.

He served as a board member of the American Philosophical Association-Central Division, and is serving on the steering committee of the Radical Philosophy Association.

Milton Fisk has maintained good professional connections with the professors of University of Debrecen for many years. He helped their scientific work and taught courses to PhD students and staff members of the Faculty of Arts in 1997 and in 2002 as well.
