UT-Austin will be hosting a 5 day summer school for graduate students on the topic of philosophical methodology. Each day of the workshop will include two or three seminar-style sessions led by faculty. In addition, there may be some number of faculty-led roundtable discussions on such issues as conceptual analysis, intuition, thought experiments, conceivability, reduction, reflective equilibrium, and ontological commitment.
To date, confirmed faculty participants include Julia Driver (Dartmouth), Jeff King (Rutgers), Dan Korman (Illinois), Marc Moffett (Wyoming), Roy Sorenson (Dartmouth), Ernest Sosa (Rutgers), and UT faculty Josh Dever, Mark Sainsbury, and David Sosa.
The workshop will be held August 12-16, 2008. Attendance will be limited to around 10 outside graduate students, the presenters, and UT graduate students and faculty. Interested graduate students are encouraged to apply. The deadline for applications is June 7, 2008. See the workshop homepage for details.
