Workshop on the Self with Anil Gomes

Friday December 1, 2023, 3:00 pm - Saturday December 2, 2023, 5:00 pm

Join us for a two-day workshop on the concept of the self with Anil Gomes. Anil Gomes is a Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy at Trinity College, Oxford, and a professor of Philosophy in the Faculty of Philosophy in the University of Oxford. He works mainly in the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of Immanuel Kant and has a long-standing interest in the work of Iris Murdoch. He also serves as the reviews editor for MIND. Dr. Gomes recently held a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship for a project on self-consciousness and objectivity. It resulted in a book, The Practical Self, forthcoming with Oxford University Press in 2024.

You can read a précis of The Practical Self. If you would like to read the entire manuscript, please contact Gurpreet Rattan.

Those interested in attending the workshop, RSVP to Gurpreet Rattan at your earliest convenience.
