How do we know about the world?
Do we know about the world?
What defines a chair?
What is the nature of language?
Does God exist?
If these questions intrigue you, then you might be interested in joining the Post-Museum Philosophy Discussion Group. No background in philosophy is required.
The second of this 4-part series begins with a session on the Philosophy of Language: Meaning and Reference.
In this session, we will look at some theories of meaning. We will distinguish between sense and reference, and in doing so, come to better understand the nature of names and descriptions. We will also consider the problem of referring to non-existent objects.
There will be a ten to fifteen minute presentation to warm up the group and to provide stimulus for discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss core topics in philosophy in a small group setting.
Friday Night Philosophy Cafe will be facilitated by Lishan Chan. Lishan has an MSc in Philosophy from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a BA (Hons) in Philosophy and Politics from the University of York.
Please RSVP to 84189844 as seats are limited.
