Boise State logo

3-4:30 p.m. Interactive Learning Center, room 315. In the academy, we sometimes treat teaching and research as though they are entirely separate components of faculty work.

November 30 @ 4:00 pm
Boise State logo

4 p.m. ILC 202. Joseph Campbell, professor of philosophy at Washington State University, will present on "Keith Lehrer on Compatibilism." There are three popular views of free will: classical libertarianism: we have free will, it requires the ability to do otherwise, so it is incompatible with determinism; source compatibilism: free will does not require the ability to do otherwise, so it is compatible with determinism and free will skepticism: no one has free will. What is interesting about Keith Lehrer is…

Dec. 1: Philosophy Speaker Series – Compatibilist Mysterianism

December 1 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Boise State logo

11 a.m. ILC 204. Joseph Campbell, professor of philosophy at Washington State University, will present on "Compatibilist Mysterianism." The consequence argument claims that if determinism is true, then no one has free will. The Mind argument suggests that free will is equally problematic given indeterminism. Some authors (Nelkin 2001) argue that the two arguments "stand or fall together." In order to escape the claim that we have no free will, van Inwagen (1983) offers incompatibilist mysterianism: the consequence argument must be fallacious, though he knows…

Dec. 7: Philosophy Colloquium – Art as Inquiry

December 7 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Boise State logo

4 p.m. ILC 202. Kate McCallum from the University of Brighton will present on "Art as Inquiry." In the aesthetics literature, there is a tendency to describe art as putting forward a novel, self-consistent system. Alva Noë calls art a reorganizing practice, a way to examine and adjust our patterns of interaction with the world. These characterizations suggest art might belong among philosophy and science. However, when likening art to either, one risks ignoring art’s uniquely strange and exploratory character.…

Dec. 8: Philosophy Colloquium – Science, Knowledge and Understanding

December 8 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Boise State logo

11 a.m. ILC 204. Ian O'Loughlin from Pacific University will present on "Science, Knowledge and Understanding." The criteria by which scientific theories are evaluated include those which are straightforwardly epistemic—such as consistency and accuracy—and those whose relationship to truth or knowledge is more complicated. Some of the latter (such as simplicity) may ultimately be truth-conducive. Larry Laudan argues that scope and consilience are not truth-conducive but nonetheless genuinely scientific, leading to a broad view of the aims of science. Other criteria remain…
