The Lisbon Circle Reading Group – a joint collaboration of the Center for Philosophy of the University of Lisbon (CFUL), Center for the Philosophy of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (CFCUL) and the Institute of Philosophy of NOVA University of Lisbon (IFILNOVA) – will soon resume its activity for the Summer term of 2021.
The group will meet fortnightly, on Thursdays, 17:00-19:00. The reading for this term will be Timothy Williamson’s The Philosophy of Philosophy (2007).
“The second volume in the Blackwell Brown Lectures in Philosophy, this volume offers an original and provocative take on the nature and methodology of philosophy. Based on public lectures at Brown University, given by the pre-eminent philosopher, Timothy Williamson Rejects the ideology of the ‘linguistic turn’, the most distinctive trend of 20th century philosophy Explains the method of philosophy as a development from non-philosophical ways of thinking Suggests new ways of understanding what contemporary and past philosophers are doing.” (From the book presentation)
