Dublin Graduate Philosophy Conference

Dialogues in Philosophy

Registration at 9.30am

Keynote Speakers: Michela Massimi (Edinburgh) and Jim O'Shea (UCD)

Most of philosophy, whether historical or contemporary, can be seen to be dialogical; very rarely is philosophical enquiry carried out in isolation. Sometimes this is explicit, when a philosopher is motivated to produce a direct response to an argument, idea or position. In some cases, thinkers might respond to an established tradition. In other cases, it may be an as yet under-developed position that either needs encouraging or else might be seen to be problematic. Furthermore, the dialogue form is popular throughout the history of philosophy, reflecting the sense that philosophers’ arguments are best understood when it is clear what they are arguing against.
