University Philosophy Work in Progress Seminar Series:*
*Real Peace in Our Time?*

*Dan Hutto (Wollongong)Date: Tuesday 27 OctoberTime: 13:00 - 14:00Venue:

Clark (2015b) has argued that predictive processing accounts and enactivism
can mutually illuminate each other in a way that could mark the end of the
representation wars. His new paper predicts, though does not guarantee,
peace in our time. As Clark sees it, situating predictive processing
accounts properly ought to provide a long awaited olive branch for
brokering peace between representationalists and enactivists. This short
work-in-progress talk will examine reasons for thinking that finding our
way to the straight path of enactivist virtue is not a matter of brokering
a theoretical peace through Clarkish compromise. It is, instead, a matter
of achieving philosophical peace through hard-won clarification. After all,
“The real discovery … is the one that gives philosophy peace, so that it is
no longer tormented by questions which bring itself into question”
(Wittgenstein 1953, §133).
