History of Modern Philosophy Group Talk (Michaela Manson, Toronto)

Friday March 6, 2020, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The History of Philosophy Group is pleased to welcome as speaker Michaela Manson, a graduate student in philosophy at the University of Toronto. Her philosophical interests centre around the early modern period, with a particular concern for questions about mind, cognition, perception, desire, and judgment. She is also interested in feminist philosophy and the philosophies of mind and language. In 2018 Michaela won the Jan Wojcik Memorial Prize for graduate students in the history of philosophy for  her research about Mary Astell (1666-1731), about whom has also written a blog post for Project Vox.

Talk Title
