Research Seminar Spring 2020 (3): Voluntary action
28 January 2020, 4:00 PM–6:00 PM GMT
The third meeting of the project research seminar this term (Spring 2020) will take place from 16.00 to 18.00, on Tuesday 28 January, 2020, in the seminar room at the Department of Philosophy, UCL (19 Gordon Square).
For this meeting, we will focus on questions about voluntary action: What distinguishes action which are voluntary from those which are not? Is there such a thing as voluntary passivity? Are all intentional action voluntary? And vice-versa?
The target readings are:
- Hyman, John. 2015. Action, Knowledge, and Will. Oxford UP. Ch. 4 “Voluntariness and Choice.”
- Ryle, Gilbert. 1949. The Concept of Mind. Hutchinson. Ch. 3 “The Will.”
John Hyman will introduce the topic.
