Putnam előadás - jó dolog-e az analitikus filozófia?

Hilary Putnam "Jó dolog-e az analitikus filozófia?" címmel előadást tart a CEUn május 10-én 18h kezdettel. Bár előadás-absztrakt nem áll rendelkezésre, amennyiben tartalmában is megegyezik a professzor által máshol azonos címmel megtartott előadásával, úgy a rövid válasz: rossz irányba tart, olvassunk több Heideggert. The CEU Philosophy Department cordially invites you to a lecture by Hilary Putnam (Harvard University) on "Is Analytical Philosophy a Good Thing?" Tuesday, 10. May, 6.00 PM, Auditorium Professor Putnam is a past president of the American Philosophical Association (Eastern Division), a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy. He has written extensively on the philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of natural science, philosophy of language, and the philosophy of mind. Many of his papers have been collected in three volumes of Philosophical Papers, in Realism with a Human Face, and in Words and Life. He is also the author of a number of books, including Renewing Philosophy and Pragmatism. Professor Putnam has developed a position on the nature of truth and justification which he calls "internal realism," or more recently, "pragmatic realism," which has become a widely discussed alternative to both traditional metaphysical kinds of realism and post-modernist scepticism. In recent years, his interests have centered on the relations between scientific and non-scientific knowledge.
