2012 Workshop in Late Modern Philosophy

Friday and Saturday, October 12 & 13, 2012

This is the 2nd workshop in a new annual series. The workshops are designed to provide a venue for presenting new work on Late Modern Philosophy (roughly the period from 1750 through 1900). The 2012 Workshop will focus on the role of the unconscious, unknown, and illusory in human agency.  We expect that speakers will approach this topic from a variety of directions, including the perspectives of action theory, philosophy of mind, ethics, social and political philosophy, and aesthetics.

Sebastian Gardner (UCL)
