Philosophy is a discipline that is divided rather deeply between two areas of investigations: the moral and political on the one hand, and the logical and metaphysical on the other. Worse, researchers in these areas rarely talk with one another. One philosopher whose work cuts across this divide is Professor Cheryl Misak. Her book Truth, Politics and Morality provides an example of the ways in which serious research on both sides can benefit from engagement with the other. There, it is shown how an informed account of truth, which draws on research into formal theories of truth, combined with a pragmatist outlook, can be put to work in our moral and political deliberations. 


The registration fee for the conference, including dinner, will be £45, with a %50 subsidy available for graduate students and unwaged philosophers.
