*THEME 2 - IS PHILOSOPHY DEAD?
Recently, some scientists and philosophers have argued that
philosophy is dead - or at least on the way out - given recent
scientific advances. Are they right?
TIME TO COOPERATE*
Our speaker, *Dominic Murphy, *will argue**will argue that one
version of philosophy is dead - the kind of conceptual analysis
predominant in the English-speaking world. But approaches in which
philosophy co-operates with other forms of inquiry to understand the
human and natural world are thriving.**
