Dear everyone,

Stephen Hetherington will present the following talk on November 14 in the
Wednesday philosophy seminar series at the University of Sydney.

  *Abstract*: Increasingly, epistemologists are discussing the conceptual
relationships between knowledge-that and knowledge-how. This paper argues
that epistemology should also encompass a distinct concept of knowing-to.
Only with knowing-to can knowledge-how be manifested in a particular action
within a particular setting. Unlike the possibly enduring knowledge-how,
knowing-to is fleeting and contextual. It is inherent within what Ryle
called *intelligent* acting. In ordinary parlance, we talk freely of
knowing-to; here, I begin investigating this epistemic aspect of action.

Wed 14 Nov 15:30 – 17:30 Eastern Time - Melbourne, Sydney
