Metaphysical Overdetermination (Ricki Bliss) @ Logic & Metaphysics Workshop @ ZOOM - see site for details
Sep 13 @ 4:15 pm – 6:15 pm
Abstract: It is widely recognized by proponents of the notion that grounding can be, indeed is, overdetermined.  Further to this, it seems safe to suppose that something of a consensus has emerged: grounding is overdetermined and there is nothing about it, either conceptually or metaphysically, that we ought to find concerning.  But from a small sampling of alleged cases no such conclusions can responsibly be drawn.  This paper aims to demonstrate that there is nothing[...]

Samantha Matherne (Harvard) Aesthetic Humility: A Kantian Model 3:30 pm
Samantha Matherne (Harvard) Aesthetic Humility: A Kantian Model @ ZOOM - see site for details
Sep 24 @ 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Unlike its moral and intellectual counterparts, the virtue of aesthetic humility has been widely neglected. In order to begin filling in this gap, I argue that Kant’s view is a promising resource for developing a model of aesthetic humility. However, prima facie, Kant’s aesthetics may seem like an unpromising starting point for this endeavor. At the very least, aesthetic humility has not been discussed as part of his aesthetic framework. What is more, some have worried[...]

Robert Iliffe – ‘A Thousand Fictions’: Cultism and Delusional Metaphysics in the Newton-Leibniz Disputes @ ZOOM - see site for details
Sep 27 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
The rich philosophical and mathematical disputes that took place between Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz at the start of the eighteenth century have received more historical attention than any other exchange in the history of philosophy. Nevertheless, in this talk, Robert Iliffe discusses a prominent but neglected aspect of their disagreement, namely the mutual claim that their opponents’ conceptual foundations were fictional, and were the product both of diseased thinking and of illegitimately organized intellectual[...]

A listing of the (usually) free philosophy events, lectures and conferences in the New York City area. [Since 2007!]

Support the calendar by leaving a tip, buying a t-shirt/ coffee mug/ sticker design as seen on the sidebar to the right, or buying me a beer if you are in NYC.

There are more talks, especially on specific topics, some of which I choose not to add and others that I’ve just missed.  See the links to philosophy groups and departments below.

N.B. Most information has been taken from webpages and is provided as is, with no guarantees as to its accuracy or the quality of the philosophy.

I take no credit for this great idea. See the Boston Area Philosophy Calendar and mailing list. If you have a correction, addition or question, or want to buy me beer, please send me an email at noah /at/ noahgreenstein \dot\ com. Tweet at the calendar @nycaphical.
