Lewis Workshop

As part of our project, we’ll be hosting a 2-day workshop on Lewisian Metaphysics. The workshop is intended to address both first-order metaphysical questions from a Lewisian perspective, as well as second-order questions regarding Lewis’s metametaphysics. The broader rationale is that whilst lots of people in the contemporary debate grew up doing metaphysics in a broadly Lewisian way, there has been relatively little discussion of the more specific details of the metametaphysical assumptions underlying Lewis’s own approach to metaphysics. This will be the first of a number of events that we’ll be hosting with the intention of addressing this lacuna.

The workshop will take place on Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th September in Seminarraum 121, Edmund-Siemers-Allee 1 Westflügel. (For those of you who have come to our previous events, it’s the same venue as before.) The speakers will be:

Monday 29th Septemeber: 
14:30-16:00. Chris Daly (Manchester)
16:30-18:00. Richard Woodward (Hamburg)

Tuesday 30th September: 
11:00-12:30. Catharine Diehl (Humboldt-Berlin)
14:30-16:00. Megan Wallace (Kentucky)
16:30-18:00. Daniel Nolan (ANU)

Attendance is free, but please let us know if you are interested in attending by emailing richard.woodward@uni-hamburg.de.
