It may come as no surprise that the title of my address was “Liberal Arts Can Save The World.”

I decided to address two topics that have captivated my attention as a philosopher: The power of the Liberal Arts and AI Anxiety Disorder. I presented my “address” in the form of a class discussion, and the students were quite engaged. In case you’re curious, here’s an essay version of my address.
