Continental Philosophy Group Talk (Robert Stern, University of Sheffield)

Professor Robert Stern’s main interests in the history of philosophy are 19th-century post-Kantian German philosophy, especially Hegel. In contemporary philosophy, he focuses on epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and political philosophy. His current work centres around the Danish philosopher and theologian K. E. Løgstrup, as well as around Martin Luther viewed from a philosophical perspective.

Language, Epistemology, Metaphysics, and Mind Group Talk (Julia Staffel, Colorado)

Julia Staffel specializes in formal epistemology and traditional epistemology, and her work also relates to issues in philosophical logic, philosophy of mind and the philosophy of science. In this talk she will argue that there is a large class of rationality judgments we routinely endorse that fall neither into the category of doxastic nor the category of propositional rationality.

Continental Philosophy Group Talk (John Russon, Guelph)

A specialist in continental philosophy, Professor Russon’s recent work had dealt with the formation of personal identity and with the issues that structure our meaningful involvement in everyday life. He has also published on Hegel, phenomenology (especially on Merleau-Ponty, Heidegger and Derrida) and ancient philosophy (especially Plato and Aristotle).
