Disjunctivism Conference

From Adrian Haddock, an announcement of a conference this June:

Disjunctivism: Perception, Action, Knowledge
Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience
University of Glasgow
Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th June, 2005


Disjunctivism became well-known with work in the philosophy of perception by J. M. Hinton, Paul Snowdon and John McDowell. Today, interest in perceptual disjunctivism is greater than ever – as a recent issue of Philosophical Studies (Volume 120, Issue 1-3, 2004), given over to the idea, attests. Disjunctivism is also a feature of recent work in the philosophy of action and in epistemology. This conference brings together some of the most prominent writers on disjunctivism in an attempt to explore its implications for our understanding of perception, action, and knowledge. It should interest people working in each of these fields, and should be of particular interest to those working at the interface of issues in epistemology and the philosophy of mind.
