NYU Conference on Issues in Modern Philosophy

2015 Conference on Issues in Modern Philosophy


The Twelfth NYU Conference on Issues in Modern Philosophy

New York University, November 6-7, 2015
Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, Room 914

Registration is free but required by Tuesday, November 3, and is available here.

The New York University Department of Philosophy will host the twelfth in its series of conferences on issues in the history of modern philosophy on November 6 and 7, 2015. Each conference in the series examines the development of a central philosophical problem from early modern philosophy to the present, exploring the evolution of formulations of the problem and of approaches to resolving it. By examining the work of philosophers of the past both in historical context and in relation to contemporary philosophical thinking, the conferences allow philosophy’s past and present to illuminate one another.

Second session: Conway

Speaker Christia Mercer (Columbia University)
Commentator Jasper Reid (King’s College, London)
