CONF – Skepticism and Naturalism: Hume, Wittgenstein, and Strawson [RoR ERC conference; Queen’s, Oxford]
3 September 2023–5 September 2023
ERC Roots of Responsibility will hold a three-day international conference on Scepticism and Naturalism: Hume, Wittgenstein, Strawson, on Sunday 3–Tuesday 5 September 2023, in person at The Queen’s College, University of Oxford. This conference is the closing event for Roots of Responsibility, and Michael Thorne, a PhD student in philosophy at UCL and the recipient of the Roots of Responsibility and UCL Philosophy joint Graduate Research Studentship, is taking the lead in its organisation.
The aim of this conference is to advance our understanding of naturalism in the work of Hume, Wittgenstein, and P. F. Strawson, especially in these philosophers’ responses to skepticism. This idea was put forward by Strawson himself in his characterisation, in Skepticism and Naturalism, of the kind of anti-skepticism that guided much of his own work.
Further details about this event can be found in this post. We encourage colleagues and especially postgraduate students to attend. Please spread the word. This event is open to all, and attendance is free.
