This seminar provides a forum for faculty members (at Oxford or visiting) and occasionally graduate students to get friendly and supportive feedback on their current work in progress in ‘theoretical’ philosophy, broadly construed. It also aims to bring together philosophers working in these areas. Those presenting a paper in a term are expected to attend the other meetings of that term. Attendance is always open to all interested faculty and graduate students. As meetings are over lunchtime, please do feel free to bring something to eat.
