Conference Theme: Underdetermination and Indeterminacy Hosted by University College Dublin
Conference date: 24th and 25th January 2020. Invited speakers: Elizabeth Harman, Rachel Sterken, Aaron Cotnoir.
This conference will bring together researchers working on issues related to underdetermination/indeterminacy in various fields. The conference theme should be understood broadly and certainly not limited to issues in philosophy of science. We welcome submissions in ethics, logic, language, metaphysics, epistemology, or any other area of philosophy. The conference aims to shed light on the nature of indeterminacy and underdetermination by showcasing the similarities and differences between manifestations of the phenomena in different areas.
Issues relevant to the conference include (but are not limited to):
- Vagueness (in logic, language, epistemology, and beyond)
- Language: polyselmy and truth-conditional underdetermination
- Logic: Logical pluralism and nihilism
- Ethics: Dilemmas
- Science: The Duhem/Quine problem and incommensurability.
- Metaphysics: Race and Gender
