Title: Edward Jeremiah, Melbourne
Knowledge as a state of the properly integrated self. A defence of the
Socratic paradox that "no one errs willingly".
Socrates' claim that no one makes willing and knowing moral mistakes has
been consistently criticised for its allegedly flawed intellectualism.
Knowing right from wrong, the argument goes, in no way necessitates moral
action. I will defend the paradoxes against this criticism, developing a
line of interpretation implicit in Plato's text and the work of other
Platonists which also has good experimental support from contemporary
psychology. Basically I will try to show that the assertion "I knew what I
was doing was wrong at the time I was doing it" (which the Socratic
principle implies can never be true) involves a problematic identification
of the subject "I", and that true ethical knowledge cannot be instantiated
in a disintegrated self.
When: Wed 6 May 2015 13:00 - 14:30 Eastern Time - Melbourne, Sydney
Where: Muniment Room, Main Quad, Univ of Sydney
