Forum for European Philosophy

FEPThe Forum is an educational charity which organises and runs a full and varied programme of philosophy and interdisciplinary events in the UK. Our events take various forms but we studiously avoid academic papers. Formats we like include dialogues, panel discussions, public lectures and provocations, all of which are open to the public and most of which are free.   



The Forum Spring 2015 Programme| is now online.

Please join the Forum's mailing list| if you would like to receive a programme in the post.


On Truth

Monday 2 February, 6.30-8pm
Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE

Simon Blackburn|, Professor of Philosophy, University of Cambridge
Pascal Engel|, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Philosophy, University of Geneva

Chair: Peter Dennis| , LSE Fellow, Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow

Realists take truth to be a robust property of our thoughts and assertions, one which fits certain facts in the world. Deflationists, expressivists and pragmatists disagree: for them truth is a very shallow notion, which comes down to a few (important) trivialities. The view one takes on truth has important consequences for all sorts of issues, in particular for moral philosophy and epistemology, and for the way we understand reasons in each domain.
