Prof. Conly’s New Book ‘Novel’ and ‘Provocative’ (New York Review of Books)

Sarah Conly, a recently tenured professor in Bowdoin’s philosophy department, has published a new book on paternalism, and The New York Review of Books is crediting it with filling a philosophical void.


  1. Christopher Hanks '68 says:

    Based on Cass Sunstein’s extended review, it sounds like Professor Conly has constructed a very clever way to defend the idea that, when considering the role of government, the ends can justify the means.

    Let’s hope there are at least some students at Bowdoin who are debating among themselves (and with Professor Conly) about whether her ideas really do hold water.
