New directions in pragmatic metaphysics for philosophy of science

Workshop dates: April 25-26, 2014

Wosk Centre for Dialogue, SFU Harbour Centre, Vancouver

Brief description:

This workshop brings together a handful of prominent philosophers working on issues that span the fields of metaphysics and philosophy of science, with a particular emphasis on pragmatism as a way for philosophers of science to get explicit about potential metaphysical commitments within their own views. Participants will complete a set of pre-readings, and consider some framing questions for discussion. More information will be available soon.
