Amie L. Thomasson (Dartmouth College): 'Conceptual Engineering: When do we need it? How can we do it?'
Chair: Beatriz Santos (BPhil, Lincoln College)
I have argued elsewhere that we should think of metaphysics as involving work in conceptual ‘research and development’—including conceptual engineering. But what are the signs that work in conceptual engineering is needed? And how is it possible— what methods can and should we use to evaluate and change our concepts?
After the talks all are invited to socialise and continue discussion over drinks in the Ryle Room. If you would like to join for dinner after the drinks reception, please email email@example.com.
