Peter Hylton: Carnap and Quine and the Nature of Evidence (and the Nature of Philosophy)

Lecture by Peter Hylton (University of Illinois, Chicago) organized by the Department of Theoretical Philosophy

In this talk I discuss the differing views of Carnap and Quine about evidence, as a way of gaining insight into their differing conceptions of philosophy and philosophical method.

Grolog Colloquium: Gil Sagi

Lecture by Gil Sagi (MCMP - LMU Munich) organized by Grolog

De grote toename in het aantal digitaal beschikbare bronnen voor geesteswetenschappelijk onderzoek maakt dat het voor onderzoekers noodzakelijk is om nieuwe zoekstrategieën te ontwikkelen. Zij ontkomen er niet aan om nieuwe computerhulpmiddelen in te zetten om de vele hits in het onderzoek gemakkelijker te kunnen overzien. Maar ook de vele misses die er met de hits meekomen maken veranderingen noodzakelijk. Hoe gaan we om met...(lees verder...)

Michael Bratman: Acting and Thinking Together

We do many things together including singing duets, dancing, and building. We engage in friendships and love, we practice the art of conversation, and we collaborate on scientific projects. Collaboration and cooperation play a central role in everyday life. In all these activities we act together in characteristic ways. How do we do it? How do we effortlessly engage with others in complex ways that seem unavailable to other species? We share intentions, even if...(continue reading...)
