This is a reminder for:
Title: Paul Griffiths (University of Sydney)
Since Ruth Millikan's influential 1984 book there has been a consensus that
many of the distinctions philosophers wish to make using the concept of
function can only be made with Millikan's historically defined concept
of 'proper function'. Here I will argue that, precisely because it is
historical in nature, Millikan's concept cannot do many of these jobs and,
more surprisingly, a concept of function defined in terms of present causal
powers can do many of these jobs.
When: Wed 29 May 2013 15:30 – 17:30 Eastern Time - Melbourne, Sydney
Where: S401, Level 4, via Lobby B (or Southern Vestibule), Quadrangle
Building, University Place, The University of Sydney.
