Ethics, Politics, and Society Lecture Series - Immigration and the Significance of Culture

Samuel Scheffler, Class of 1941 World War II Memorial Professor of Philosophy and Law at the University of California at Berkeley, is one of the most talented and influential moral philosophers in America. His first book, "The Rejection of Consequentialism," was quickly recognized as a fundamental contribution to moral theory. Since then, he has become equally renowned for his applications and adaptations of moral theory to the urgent problems of today's world. Many of his important essays in this area are collected in Boundaries and Allegiances. Scheffler is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
