Join us for our Autumn research seminars of 2021. The speaker this week is Errol Lord, University of Pennsylvania.
“Abstract: In this talk I will defend the idea that we can literally perceive aesthetic and ethical features of the world, a view that I call direct perceptualism. I will argue for this on the grounds that direct perceptualism provides the best explanation of how we learn concrete normative facts. Along the way I will argue against brute reliabilist views, intuitionist views, and indirect perceptualist views.”
This talk aligns well with the Department’s Normative Philosophy, and Mind, Psychology, and Mental Health research clusters!
Please note that all talks will take place virtually, not on campus. All are welcome. The seminars will take place Wednesdays at 3pm.
Any staff or graduate students are more than welcome to come along for a (non-virtual) drink or two at the Orchard afterwards – for that, we will meet in the Humanities Building, C-Floor open space at 5pm and head on over to the Orchard.
To sign up for our mailing list, please email the seminar convenor, Craig French.
