20th Annual Toronto Graduate Philosophy Conference
Friday May 21, 2021 - Saturday May 22, 2021
Philosophy has a set of familiar questions in familiar areas that constitutes its “core”. Equally familiar are the standard ways of approaching these questions. But these questions are not the only questions to be asked, nor these approaches the only approaches to be taken. By drawing on diverse perspectives, recent work in areas such as social philosophy has broken new ground and challenged long-held philosophical assumptions. Similarly, recent work in the history of global philosophical traditions has improved our understanding of philosophy and its history while providing novel insights into philosophy’s familiar problems. In this conference, we aim to further this work.
The 20th Annual Toronto Graduate Philosophy Conference will be held virtually on May 21 and 22, 2021 at the University of Toronto.
