Philosophy Proseminar

Philosophy proseminar. We will study some highlights of twentieth century work on the interrelated topics of epistemology and meaning. There are two goals: to become familiar with these classics, and to develop the ability to do philosophy, in writing and in public.


  • For the first meeting (9/8) read Russell, The Problems of Philosophy, chapters 1-2; Ayer, Language, Truth, and Logic chapters 1-3
