Philosophy Forum 05/01/2018: Peter Wolfendale: The Noumenon’s New Clothes

Dear All

the first forum of the year will be to finish up the Wolfendale paper (pages 344-366). In case anyone missed it Terence Blake was kind enough to post this document to aid our various understandings of OOO and it’s critics.

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

Seasonal wishes

Philosophy Forum 20/12/2017 -Peter Wolfendale: The Noumenon’s New Clothes

Dear All

this week sees the last forum of the year, the topic I’m afraid is nothing particularly seasonal, being just a return to Peter Wolfendale’s critique of object oriented ontology (after a brief refreshing hiatus to Graham Harman).

The reading is pages 320-345 in the pdf.

Seasonal topic or not it is the forum Christmas special and as such takes place on Wednesday at 14:15 in the usual room. After this we can repair to the tower bar for refreshment.

best (Christmas) wishes

Dear All

this week I thought we could begin to look at Wolfendale’s review and critique of object oriented ontolog: The Noumenon’s New Clothes’.

The paper is quite long so I suggest we read the first 31 pages this week and see how that goes. The meeting is in the usual place UL102 14:15-15:45 and the reading is available here.

best wishes

Graham
