UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Philosophy Library dedication

The dedication of the John L. King Philosophy Library will be Thursday, Nov. 15, 5 p.m. The library is at 212 Curry Building. The dedication will be followed by a Great Conversation on Dr. King’s paper “Bivalence and the Sorites Paradox”. All are welcome.

King was a philosophy professor at UNCG from 1974 until his death in March 2011. His areas of specialization included logic and philosophy of science and he had an extensive collection of books and journals on these topics that his wife, Anne, donated to the department for a library. The library will be available to Philosophy students as a place to meet, study and conduct research. He was an early proponent of computers in the classroom (see archival clipping; King is in center) and served on several UNCG committees developing campus-wide use; he helped develop the Great Conversation lecture series; and he established and advised the UNCG Phi Sigma Tau chapter.
