Peter van Inwagen (b. 1942)
Van Inwagen received his bachelor's degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1965, and his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Rochester, where he studied under Richard Taylor, in 1969. He taught philosophy at the University of Syracuse for 24 years. Since 1995, he has taught at the University of Notre Dame, where he is currently John Cardinal O'Hara Professor of Philosophy. Van Inwagen's arguments against the coherence of compatibilism have contributed significantly to the interest and acceptance of libertarian free will in contemporary English-language analytic philosophy. He delivered the 2002 Gifford Lectures, which were published as The Problem of Evil. In addition to the problems of evil and free will, he also works on many other areas of philosophical theology and fundamental ontology.

Peter van Inwagen, Notre Dame's John Cardinal O'Hara Professor of Philosophy, will speak about "We're Right, They're Wrong" in the Oak-Redbud Room, on the second floor of SIUE's Morris Center. A reception is scheduled with Inwagen at 4 p.m. that day in the same location. After the talk, time is allotted for comments and discussion until 6:30 p.m.
Before joining the faculty at Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., Inwagen taught for many years at Syracuse University. He earned a doctorate at the University of Rochester, where he studied with Richard Taylor and Keith Lehrer.
Some scholars say that Inwagen's An Essay on Free Will (Oxford University Press, 1983) renewed the discussion of libertarianism and free will within the study of analytical philosophy.
