Judith Jarvis Thomson’s “A Defense of Abortion”
After Forty Years
A Critical Appreciation
August 3, 2011
Judith Jarvis Thomson’s seminal article “A Defense of Abortion” was first published in 1971. It has since become one of the most widely taught, widely reprinted, and widely discussed papers in contemporary moral philosophy. To mark the fortieth anniversary of its initial publication, the Department of Philosophy at the University of Colorado is pleased to announce a symposium devoted to a critical examination of Thomson’s famous article. The event will take place on the early evening of Wednesday, August 3, 2011, the day before the start of RoME 2011.
