Philosophy Colloquium: Guido Melchior


Fri, 04/13/2018 - 15:00 to 17:00

The Spring 2018 Philosophy Colloquium Series presents Guido Melchior (University of Graz). 

Title: Knowledge and Argumentation. 

Skeptical arguments are usually understood as making a significant claim about the limits of knowledge. In my paper, I will suggest that many skeptical arguments should be rather reinterpreted as teaching us a lesson about the limits of argumentation. Moreover, I will sketch how a theory of argumentation and its limits can be built on reinterpretations of traditional skeptical arguments.

Location: Maloney Seminar Room, Social Sciences 224.
