The Bounds of Sense: Fifty Years On.
2 May 2016, Trinity College, Oxford
*** REGISTRATION OPEN ***
A One Day Workshop
P.F. Strawson’s The Bounds of Sense was published in 1966. This pioneering commentary on Immanuel Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason has been incredibly influential, both in Kant scholarship and in theoretical philosophy more generally. Strawson’s identification of a necessary structure to our thought and experience, his criticisms of inflationary metaphysical thinking, and his deployment of a method of transcendental argument have provoked and inspired in equal measure. In Hilary Putnam’s words, The Bounds of Sense ‘opened the way to a reception of Kant's philosophy by analytic philosophers’.
This workshop will use the half-century of Strawson’s book as an opportunity to reassess its significance, in terms of its substantive discussion of topics in theoretical philosophy and also as a commentary on and interpretation of the Critique of Pure Reason.
