Proceedings of the Philosophy Colloquia, Winter/Spring 1974; Council for Philosophic Studies.
Skagit Valley Coll., Mount Vernon, WA.
Summaries are provided of three colloquiums conducted at Skagit Valley College in February, March, and May 1974. A paper on "The Role of Philosophy at a Community College," by Valeria A. Simmons is also included. The colloquiums addressed the following topics: Coping with Certain Transfer Problems of Philosophy Majors from Public Community Colleges to Senior Catholic Institutions; Philosophy, Women, and Community Colleges; and Philosophically Trained Public Administrators. In the first colloquium, the problems discussed concerned students who aspire to clerical or ordinal vocations, and who begin their education in public community colleges and subsequently transfer to Catholic senior institutions. The second colloqium addressed the scope and role of philosophy in our society and the difficulties but importance of women being involved in philosophy. The use of philosophic techniques in the conduct of public affairs was the concern of the third colloqium. (DB)
