Trent Dougherty: "Experience First"

Tue, February 5, 2013 | David L. Miller Conference Room, WAG 316

12:30 PM - 2:00 AM

Influential logician and philosopher of language Timothy Williamson marches under the banner "Knowledge First."  But what does this mean?  The most plausible suggestion is that it consists in an apparently loosely related set of theses about knowledge, which are intended to make knowledge somehow special or privileged.  I will argue that all of these thesis are false or inconsequential, if true.  I will be marching under the banner "experience first."
