Profs. Benj Hellie and Jessica Wilson spent May and June at the Philosophical Research Centre for Logic, Language, Metaphysics and Epistemology (Arché) at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. Wilson presented her paper “No Work for a Theory of Grounding”; Hellie presented “Self-spectaturship and self-givenness”.
Our first year enhancement program, “Bring Reason to Life” was brought to life in Julia Nefky’s PHLA11 course. It featured an inclass debate between Prof. Andrew Seppielli and Prof. Russ Shafer-Landau (Univ. of Wisconsin – Madison), followed by a luncheon in the philosophy department lounge.
In February, 2013 Professor Emeritus gave a presentation at the TEDx conference held at UTSC. His presentation was intriguingly entitled “Against Nature”. You can find it on youtube or vimeo.
