Dear SydPhilers

At 4 for 4.30 on 3 Nov, I will give a talk by zoom to the Glebe Realists group on David Armstrong (1926-2014), Sydney's most internationally prominent philosopher. Abstract and zoom link below.

James Franklin

David Armstrong was much the most internationally successful philosopher to come from Sydney. The talk will begin with an introduction to his life from privileged Empire childhood and Push fringe to acclaimed elder statesman of realist philosophy. Then it will survey his philosophy, from its Andersonian realist inheritance to his views on materialism and his theory of universals and views on a few other topics such as religion and ethics.

Annette Larke is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
