Talk set on athletics, education, Nov. 30

"The Sweatiest of the Liberal Arts: Athletics and Education" is the topic of a lecture set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30, in McCosh 10.

Drew Hyland, a Trinity College professor and member of the Princeton class of 1961, will return to campus to deliver the next address in the Jake McCandless '51 Princeton Varsity Club Speaker Series.

Hyland, the Charles A. Dana Professor of Philosophy at Trinity, specializes in ancient Greek philosophy, 19th- and 20th-century continental philosophy, philosophy of sport and philosophy of art. He has written 10 books, including two on the philosophy of sport. In 1992, he was awarded the Brownell Prize for Teaching Excellence, Trinity's highest teaching award.

The McCandless Speaker Series, organized by the Princeton Varsity Club, strives to bring to campus speakers who will engage the Princeton community in topics that reflect the educational values inherent in the intercollegiate athletics experience.
