Language, Epistemology, Metaphysics, and Mind Group Talk (Roger White, MIT)

Friday September 29, 2017, 3:15 pm - 5:00 pm

One of five departmental research interest groups, the Metaphysics and Epistemology Group (now known as the Language, Epistemology, Metaphysics and Mind Group) undertakes research in philosophy of mind, philosophy of cognitive science, traditional and formal epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of language.

The group welcomes Professor Roger White from MIT whose work addresses a variety of issues in epistemology and the philosophy of science, including perceptual justification, applications of probability to reasoning, skepticism, induction, and the role of explanatory considerations in theory assessment.

A selection of Professor White’s publications is listed on the MIT website.

The topic of Professor White’s talk is curiosity.
