Epistemology at the Pacific — 2 Comments

  1. This may be a touch self-serving, but the following session isn’t on Jon’s list:

    III-J Colloquium: Philosophy of Science
    Thursday, 9:00-noon, Victorian
    Chair: Kelly Becker (Univ. of New Mexico)
    Speaker: Chase B. Wrenn (Univ. of Alabama)
    “Moderate Rationalism’s Problem with Induction”
    Commentator: Troy Cross (Yale University)

    The paper has a lot more to do with induction and rationalism than with the philosophy of science.
