The Demarcation Problem for Philosophy

April 27 @ 4:10 PM - 5:30 PM

Alumni House, Toll Room, Berkeley, United States

 

Join Steven Yablo, David W. Skinner Professor of Philosophy, Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at Massachusetts Institute of Technology for a Howison Lecture on the topic of The Demarcation Problem for Philosophy.

Philosophy almost alone among disciplines appears to lack a distinctive subject matter. The world has chemical, biological, and political aspects, but no philosophical aspects. If subject matter does have a role to play here, it’s to do less with the field’s descriptive ambitions than the genealogy of philosophical problems.

This lecture will be streamed live on the Berkeley Graduate Lectures website. It is currently also being offered in person, though that is subject to change.

Like all Berkeley Graduate Lectures, this event is free and open to the public. Please register to receive updates regarding the event.
