Phil 595F | Topics in Formal Philosophy

This is the website for Phil 595F (Fall 2014) at UMass Amherst. If you are enrolled in this class you should be checking this page regularly.


If you want to be kept in the loop, you should sign up for the class mailing list here. In general, I will only email about Very Important Issues. Most announcements related to our class will take place on this site, so make sure to visit regularly!

There was an error in the definition of a Goodman set in the fifth problem set. I’ve fixed it. Please make sure you have the latest version of the problem set before you get started.

This coming week, Steve Yablo will be visiting our seminar. He will present some of his recent work on indicative conditionals. Steve asked that we read two papers in preparation for his visit. I’ve listed them in the usual place.

As I announced in class, our meeting this week will take place in N400 ILC, where Emmanuel Chemla will be giving a lecture titled ‘Concepts in a Lexicon“:” Learning Homophony. Innateness and Bayesianism’.

The readings for 10/15, as well as the third problem set, are now available in the usual places.
