Lansdowne Lecture: February 2nd

Title: "Belief in a Fallen World"

Speaker: Dr. Robert Pasnau 

Thursday, February 2nd at 7pm, ECS Room 124

Robert Pasnau is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Colorado Boulder. His scholarly interests revolve around the relationship between mind and world: how the nature of mind shapes our conception of reality, and how the constraints of reality shape what we count as knowledge and understanding. He has explored these themes especially in the context of the rise of early modern philosophy from medieval Aristotelianism. He is the founder of Oxford Studies in Medieval Philosophy and the author of several monographs, including the forthcoming After Certainty: A History of our Epistemic Ideals and Illusions,based on the Isaiah Berlin Lectures delivered at Oxford in 2014.
