Details

In 2017 it will be 100 years since the birth of Donald Davidson (1917-2003), one of the most prominent philosophers of the twentieth century. The graduate students in the Department of Philosophy at York University (Toronto) are organizing a graduate conference in celebration of his thoroughly systematic and deeply original work, whose influence on, and relevance for, current ways of addressing many philosophical questions, including questions about action, knowledge, language, mind, reasons, and so on, would be hard to overstate.
