Philosophy for Public Administration - November 7th, 2018

Dr. Edoardo Ongaro, Professor of Public Management at the Open University and President of the European Group of Public Administration (EGPA) will be at the Penn State Eastgate Center in Downtown Harrisburg speaking about "Philosophy and Public Administration: The Practical Significance of Critical Thinking for Managing Public Organizations." Based on his recent publication Philosophy and Public Administration, Dr. Ongaro discusses the philosophical foundations of the study and practice of public administration, from classical metaphysics to phenomenology, empiricism to rationalism and pragmatism to personalism, ultimately revealing their significance for public governance and management.

After the event we will have a light dinner at Cafe 1500 in Midtown Harrisburg.
