Deakin Philosophical Society meeting
Should philosophy be experimental?
Wednesday 14 March from 5-6.30pm in ib3.307 on the Waurn Ponds campus
This Wednesday, 14 March, from 5-6.30pm in ib3.307 on the Waurn Ponds campus the Deakin Philosophical Society will discuss the question ‘Should philosophy be experimental?’ Discussion will focus on the work of Associate Professor Joshua Knobe. In particular, we’ll look at a very brief article that Knobe published in The Philosophers’ Magazine entitled ‘What Is Experimental Philosophy?’. You can also find good introductions to Knobe’s work here and here, the transcript of an interview with Knobe here, and Knobe’s contribution to the New York Times philosophy column ‘The Stone’ here.
Hope to see you all there.
Treasurer, Deakin Philosophical Society.
