*UOW Philosophy Research Presents*
Agential Control and Practical Knowledge

*Speaker*: Dr. Markos Valaris
*Title*: Agential Control and Practical Knowledge
*Time*: 3.30-5.00
*Date*: 5 September 2018
*Place*: Building 19, room 2001

Aimed at staff and postgraduates, but open to all.

*Abstract*: As many philosophers have noted, there is an intuitive link
between intentional action and control: your actions stand out from the
things that merely happen to or around you, by being under your control. In
this paper I sketch an account of agential control, inspired in part by
Anscombe’s conception of practical knowledge, or knowledge that is "the
cause of what it understands".

Best wishes
