Sam Liao, philosophy, contributed an article to an installment of "Philosophers On" on the website Daily Nous, reflecting on the question, "How, if at all, should the moral transgressions of those involved in making art change what we think about, and how we act in regard to, their art?" Read his article, "Non-aesthetic Reasons for Engaging With a Work."

CES celebrates the end of fall semester by donating dolls and more to Toy Rescue Mission
CES is on a mission for the Toy Rescue Mission. Since 1993 the team in Career and Employment Services has celebrated the end of the fall semester with a gathering and contribution to a local charity. From helping sort food for Emergency Food Network, to sewing hats and scarves, to volunteering at more than a dozen area organizations, each year the team finds some way to come together and give back. This year they're gathering toys for the Toy Rescue Mission, such as dolls from Lemon Heart Creations (pictured), board games, puzzles, books, game consoles, and more. (And they're willing to let others in on the fun, too, so if you'd like to donate something, drop it off to CES in Howarth 101 by noon, Monday, Dec. 11.) #loggersgiveback
