Mind Meaning and Rationality group seminar December 3rd

Dr Joseph Schear (Christ Church, Oxford) will be giving a talk on ‘Domesticating Rationality’


‘I will consider various strategies for explaining our capacity for rationality, understood as responsiveness to reasons, in naturalistic, but nonetheless non-reductive, terms. I will offer some reasons for enthusiasm about such a project, and then offer some reasons for skepticism that any of the strategies I consider will ultimately be satisfying.’

The seminar will take place at 2.30 pm at Walton Hall in Wilson A, Meeting Room 5. (Please note that the start time is a little later than usual.)

All are very welcome. For further information, please contact Carolyn Price ([email protected])
