Readers: Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall, Steve Heighton, Jonathan Garfinkel, Damian Rogers, and
Karen Solie

“THERE IS A CRACK, A CRACK IN EVERYTHING. THAT'S HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN”

It is perhaps a cruel coincidence that Leonard Cohen died the day before Donald Trump was elected to America’s highest office. Cohen’s music, poetry, and protest songs captured elements of a universal human experience, cherishing the very perfection of our imperfections. Steeped in social commentary and piercing insights, his words and music weave a common thread through disparate human experiences and shine a light on our commonalities. Toronto’s Art of Time Ensemble has gathered a group of artists—singers, musicians, and authors—with a profound love and respect for Leonard Cohen’s work, to pay tribute to his legacy. Performances of Cohen’s music by singers Steven Page, Sarah Slean, Tom Wilson, and Gregory Hoskins, are presented in special arrangements for the Ensemble and paired with commentary, anecdotes, and readings by a selection of top Canadian writers.

Epistemology Colloquium series featuring Juan Piñeros Glassock, Yale University

Epistemology Colloquium series featuring Juan Piñeros Glassock, Yale University

When:
Thursday, January 18, 2018
4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Where:
Watson Hall
Room: 517
Find on Campus Map
Description:

The Department of Philosophy presents the Epistemology Colloquium series which will take up the first few weeks of our department’s colloquium schedule, continuing this Thursday.  The speakers are all candidates for an Epistemology position in Philosophy.

Our second colloquium of the year is being given by Juan Piñeros Glassock, Yale University

Abstract:

Authoritative Knowledge

I argue that practical authority is a basic knowledge source: in the right situations, a person is epistemically warranted to form a belief (e.g. about what her subordinates will do) just on the basis of exercising her authority, yielding what I call ‘authoritative knowledge’. I argue for this thesis by presenting arguments against an alternative, inferentialist account of authoritative knowledge, and then by offering a positive, virtue-theoretic account of direct warrant that explains what features of authority make it a basic knowledge source.

 

THURSDAY, January 18th, 2018

WATSON HALL, ROOM 517 @ 4:00 p.m.

EVERYONE WELCOME
