Welcome to the Department of Philosophy, at Brown University.
The colloquium schedule for 2013-14 is still being finalized. It will be posted when available.
The Philosophy Department has moved! We are now located in Corliss-Brackett House, which is at the corner of Angell Street and Prospect Street. The house, which is on the US National Register of Historic Places, was built in 1875 by the inventor George Henry Corliss. It was previously the Admissions Office.
Come find us in our new home!
Congratulations to Derek Bowman, Matthew Konig, Katia Samoilova, and Vlad Vlaovic, who have all successfully defended their dissertations this April. Bowman's dissertation was entitled Utopian Models and the Ideal Theory Debate; Konig's, Taking Seriously the Metaphysics of Mental Causation: A Nonreductivist Account; Samoilova's, The Case for Pluralism About Introspection; and Vlaovic's Normative Reality: Heavy-Duty Realism and the Expressivist Challenge.
The Department of Philosophy is pleased to announce the formation of the center for Ethical Inquiry. Its mission is to foster philosophical inquiry into the "good life" in a manner broadly inspired by the form this inquiry assumed in ancient Greek philosophy (paradigmatically in Stoic philosophy).
