Event details

Part of the 2019/2020 series of Philosophy Research Seminars

There will be two aspects to my paper. First I shall discuss some of the respects in which Anne Conway is representative of the issues that arise in relation to the study women philosophers, highlighting some of the limitations in how her philosophy has come to be discussed. Secondly I shall argue that to get a fuller sense of her philosophy, and to open up other dimensions of her philosophy we need to take seriously her engagement with non-canonical strands of thought. I shall illustrate this from her what we can piece together about her views on sense-perception.

This seminar will be chaired by Professor Daniel Whiting.

The room for this talk has limited capacity, and seats will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
