Can Stories Change the Way You Think? (The Highlights!)

Thanks to Professors Mar, Holmes, and Lamarque, and our great audience members, we had an excellent event last night. Since many people who could not come have contacted us, you can now read the highlights of the event — in the form of live tweets — all together via Storify.


CFP: Philosophy of Art Meets Philosophy of Science

Shaping the Trading Zone: Bringing Aesthetics and Philosophy of Science Together

Friday 5th – Saturday 6th September 2014
School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science
University of Leeds

Invited speakers: Ann-Sophie Barwich (University of Exeter), Otávio Bueno (Miami), Alix Cohen (Edinburgh), George Darby (London), Catherine Elgin (Harvard University), Steven French (Leeds), John Kulvicki (Dartmouth College), Aaron Meskin (Leeds), Dean Rickles (Sydney), Nola Semczyszyn (Franklin & Marshall College), Adam Toon (University of Exeter)

There are a limited number of places on the programme for graduate speakers. Those interested in presenting should send an abstract of no more than 250 words to Steven French at by Monday July 14th.

Papers should (obviously) address the core theme of the conference on how the philosophy of art and the philosophy of science might be brought into productive engagement with one another.

Although this is not directed connected to our project, it does touch on related issues. Consider submitting, as it should be a fun and rewarding event!
