Nancy Cartwright Colloquium: The Scientific Method: The Devil is Always in the Details

January 24 @ 3:00 pm
HMNSS 1500

Eliot Sober argues that the scientific method includes many non-trivial principles of reasoning that apply across vastly different subject matters. Nancy Cartwright notes that rigorous methods tend to be very restrictive in what they can do, maintaining that the real work in science is done by mixing methods that are highly specific to a given subject matter. Her basic worry is that privileging particular methods restricts the scope of what science can find out and sets unacceptable limits on the…

Colloquium: “Reconceiving Constitutivism” by Avery Archer (George Mason University)

February 7 @ 3:10 pm - 5:00 pm
HMNSS 1500

ABSTRACT: According to the cognitivist account of practical rationality, the means-end coherence norm governing intention may be explained in terms of the closure norm governing belief. One longstanding objection to the cognitivist account, due to Michael Bratman, is that there are cases in which an agent satisfies the closure norm governing the belief that they will perform a certain action and yet fail to satisfy the means-end coherence norm governing their intention to perform that very action. This paper advances…

Colloquium: Nomy Arpaly (Brown) – “On Benevolence”

February 28 @ 3:10 pm - 5:00 pm
HMNSS 1500

Abstract: It is widely agreed that benevolence is not the whole of the moral life, but it is not as widely appreciated that benevolence is an irreducible part of that life. This paper argues that Kantian efforts to characterize benevolence, or something like it, in terms of reverence for rational agency fall short. Such reverence, while credibly an important part of the moral life, is no more the whole of it than benevolence

Bernd Magnus Lecture: Ken Gemes (Birkbeck College, University of London)

March 7 @ 3:10 pm - 5:00 pm
HMNSS 1500

Title: The Biology of Evil: Nietzsche on Entartung and Verjüdung (Degeneration and Jewification) The lecture aims to examine how Nietzsche uses some of the tropes and rhetoric of 19th century degeneration theory, and how he attempts a new interpretation of those tropes. In also examines Nietzsche’s rather ambiguous place in the related rhetoric of Verjüdung (Jewification) and shows how here again he takes an idiosyncratic and nuanced approach.  Understanding his idiosyncratic use of the rhetoric of Verjüdung will help us explain the…
