Frank Jackson is one of Australia’s most important philosophers. In a career spaning over 40 years, Jackson has published papers and books in areas as diverse as philosophy of mind, epistemology, philosophy of language, metaphysics, ethics and meta-ethics. He is well known for the breadth of his influential views in these areas, and he is also associated with very important views on the methodology of philosophy and conceptual analysis. He delivered the Locke lectures in 1995 and was awarded the Order of Australia for services to philosophy in 2006. He is a vital voice in Australasian philosophy. This workshop has been organised in his honour, to discuss a range of papers by people from different career stages with whom he has worked, or who have addressed his work in theirs. We’ll also include a plenary discussion of views about how philosophy should be done, and what influence Jackson has had on these views.
