Just in time for Halloween, Dr. Tim Madigan guest-edited the current issue of Philosophy Now magazine, which commemorates the 200th anniversary of the publication of Frankenstein, and its connection to philosophy.

Madigan, a professor of philosophy, wrote an article, “Frankenstein Lives!,” which explores reasons why the novel has remained so popular and considers the core philosophical themes of the story.

This also serves as the theme of the 16th annual Philosophy Day celebration, to be held Thursday, Nov. 15 and Friday, Nov. 16 on campus, featuring Dr. Raymond Boisvert, professor emeritus of philosophy at Siena College, as keynote speaker at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 6:30.
