Debating debates, with men (just men)

From Philos-l:

The Philosophy Faculty at the New College of the Humanities (NCH) and the Duesseldorf Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science (DCLPS) are pleased to announced the one-day workshop: Debating Debates.

The workshop aims to bring together scholars engaged in debating the conditions under which object-level debates are worth having and hence in the corresponding meta-level debates. Two specific areas are used as case studies: meta-ontology and the debate surrounding the scientific realism debate. We hope that by transcending the particularities of their areas, scholars can find out whether anything general can be said about when and why object-level debates are worthwhile.

  1. I don’t actually think we have grounds for assuming anything about how this came about. I’m just calling attention to it as part of a pattern.

  2. I was actually reacting to the number of posts you’ve had recently on less than Ideal aspects of ‘our’ society. But I’m glad you reminded us that things can look exclusionary without being intentionally so.

  3. Hi there,

    I’m one of the co-organisers. We contacted about 6 or 7 different female speakers but none of them could make it. At some point, we decided to stop asking and make an announcement as we were getting too close to the event itself.

    Best wishes,
    Ioannis Votsis
