Talk on Gaming, Epilepsy, & Probability at Lied Library

Please join the Center for Gaming Research's February Gaming Research fellow David J. Hart for a Gaming Research Colloquium talk entitled, “An Illegitimate Child: Epilepsy, Gambling, and the Birth of Probability.”

Hart joined WTAMU during the 2007 fall semester after receiving his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Georgia. Previously, he completed his B.A. and M.A. in English at UGA and a B.A. in religious studies at Georgia State University. Hart regularly teaches courses in both philosophy and English, as well as directing the University Writing Center, and has consulted for the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. His primary research interests are early modern thought, the history of empiricism, and the intersections of philosophy and literature. Forthcoming publications include a philosophical essay on sovereignty (The Remnant Review), as well as literary essays on James Joyce (James Joyce Quarterly) and J. L. Borges (Variaciones Borges). Recent funded research includes work at the Leo Strauss Archive at the University of Chicago.
