Winter School on Paradoxes and Dilemmas -- Groningen

On January 26th-27th 2015, the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Groningen will host a short Winter School aimed at advanced undergraduate students and early-stage graduate students. The theme of the winter school is Paradoxes and Dilemmas, and it will consist of 6 tutorials where the topic will be discussed from different viewpoints: theoretical philosophy, practical philosophy, and the history of philosophy. As such, the Winter School may be of interest to at least some of the M-Phi readers; for further details, check the site of the Winter School.

Lectures: 

  • Catarina Dutilh Novaes: ‘Paradoxes: at the heart of philosophy’
  • Barteld Kooi: ‘Epistemic paradoxes: is the concept of knowledge incoherent?’
  • Han -Thomas Adriaenssen : ‘Divine foreknowledge versus free will? Theology and modality in the Middle Ages’
  • Sander de Boer: 'So what were these Aristotelian forms supposed to do again? Late Medieval and Early Modern metaphysics'
  • Frank Hindriks: ‘Trolleyology: The Philosophy and Psychology of a Moral Dilemma’
  • Marc Pauly: ‘Philosophical Dilemmas in Public Policy: Ontology meets Ethics'

Scholarships: 
The Faculty is offering up to three EUR 300 scholarships for the best students enrolling in the winter school, and who express serious interest in later applying for the Research Masters’ program. Moreover, participants who are then accepted in the Research Masters’ program for the year 2015/2016 will have their registration fee for the winter school reimbursed.

Deadline to apply for the scholarships: December 1st 2014. Preference will be given to members of underrepresented groups in philosophy (women, people of color, persons with disabilities etc.).
