The U.S. Supreme Court and its nine justices are often thought of as one, but what exactly is the relationship of the institution to individual members of the court? Gabriel Uzquiano, assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Rochester, will discuss issues of permanence and change at the highest court on Wednesday, May 19, on the University's River Campus.

In a recent article in the philosophy journal Nous, Uzquiano argued that groups like the Supreme Court fall into a category of their own and can survive the gain, loss, and replacement of members. Uzquiano has taught philosophy at the University since 1999.

Tickets for the program, part of the Wednesday Evening Lectures sponsored by the University of Rochester Alumni Association, are $5 per person with dessert and coffee served before the event. The talk will be held at The Meliora in the Frederick Douglass Building on the University's River Campus.

Free parking will be available in the Library Lot. For more information and reservations, contact the Fairbank Alumni House at (585) 273-5888.
