Workshop: “A Real Dialogue on an Ideal Topic” (29 April 2015, Trieste)

Within the course in History of Modern and Contemporary Philosophy taught by prof. Cinzia Ferrini at the University of Trieste, Kenneth R. Westphal and Paolo Parrini will conduct a ‘real’ dialogue about ‘ideal’ topics concerning truth and rationality, the justification of knowledge and the criticism of both metaphysical realism and radical relativism.

The aim of the workshop is to explore the common ground of idealism, realism and pragmatism by developing both a theoretical and a historical perspective.
