Philosophy Forum 31/03/2016 -Iain Hamilton Grant’s Speculative Realism

Dear All

this week we’ll spend another session trying to unravel what Iain is trying to convey by focusing only his section of the Collapse article (pages 334-365 if you include the q&a).

The meeting will be in UL102 14:15-15:45.

Philosophy Forum 24/03/2016-Speculative Season: The Philosophy of Iain Hamilton Grant.

Dear All

having (for now at least) finished with Graham Harman I would like to turn our attention to the work of another ‘speculative realist’ philosophy: Iain Hamilton Grant. Like Harman, Grant is one of initial philosophers starting this movement. The materials I’m suggesting for our initial engagement are pages 334-365 of the goldsmiths document and this interview with him.

The meeting will be in UL102 14:15-15:45.

best wishes

Philosophy Forum 10/03/2016 -P. J. E. Kail: On Hume’s Appropriation of Malebranche: Causation and Self

Dear All

I thought next week we could look at a little bit of background to Harman’s problem i.e. the relation between Hume and Malebranche. To this end I have found this paper.

The meeting is in the usual place (UL102) and back at the usual time 14:15-15:45.

with best wishes

Graham
