Talk by Anthony Price (Birkbeck) ĎA Quietist Particularismí to be held in the Lecture Room at the Philosophy Centre, 10 Merton Street.
Section I follows Dancy in distinguishing reasons for actions from enablers or intensifiers of those reasons. It proposes that variations in valence are produced by a degree of generality in reasons. II is sceptical of Väyrynenís claim that variable reasons have invariant groundings, and prefers a Wittgensteinian appeal to a heterogeneous framework of rules, values, paradigms. III is less realist than Dancy or Väyrynen about the metaphysical status of the reason-relation between facts and acts.
All philosophers are welcome to attend, and also to join the speaker for drinks after the talk, and later for dinner.
