4-6 giugno 2015: Philosophical Puzzles: VIII Latin Meeting in Analytic Philosophy

Logo Società Italiana per la Filosofia Analitica

Convegno Internazionale - VIII Latin Meeting in Analytic Philosophy


“Philosophical Puzzles”

4—6 giugno 2015 - Università degli Studi di Milano


Puzzles have a special place in philosophy. Philosophy itself has been said to be born in puzzlement. And a bunch of puzzles are sometimes what philosophy gets you in the end. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, as the heritage of philosophy lies as much in its theories and visions as it lies in its puzzles. Through their ubiquitous presence in metaphysics, logic, ethics, epistemology, and the rise of scientific thought, philosophical puzzles have contributed to shape the intellectual history of mankind. More modestly, philosophical puzzles are what the 8th Latin Meeting in Analytic Philosophy is about.
