Seminar: Dr Joseph Schear, 3 December 2014

Mind Meaning and Rationality group seminar

Dr Joseph Schear (Christ Church, Oxford)
Domesticating Rationality
3 December 2014

I will consider various strategies for explaining our capacity for rationality, understood as responsiveness to reasons, in naturalistic, but nonetheless non-reductive, terms. I will offer some reasons for enthusiasm about such a project, and then offer some reasons for skepticism that any of the strategies I consider will ultimately be satisfying.
