Philosophy Forum 04/05/2017 -Christian Borch: Hermann Broch and the Problem of Irrationality.

Dear All

this week we will be looking at a paper by Borch on Broch. The similarity of which has not escaped me. To investigate the Borch-Broch connection I suggest you turn up to UL102 14:15-15:45 on the appropriate day.

The reading can be found here.




Philosophy Forum 13/04/2017: Kahneman: Thinking Fast and Slow

Dear All

following on from the discussion of the LIDA interpretation of Kahneman’s ideas the forum will look at some of Kahneman’s work itself.

There is a variety of material by which we might do this. I propose as a basic we read this abstract of the text and supplement it will as much of the first section of the text itself as anyone can manage. By that I mean the section which follows the introduction and begins with ‘the characters in the story’.  I am informed that the essay in appendix B is also worth a look though whether or not anyone has time to read that as well I don’t know.

The meeting is in UL102 14:15-15:45

best wishes
