Justin Broackes, Professor of Philosophy, Brown University
Tea at 1:15PM; talk at 1:30pm
Professor Broackes works on metaphysics, philosophy of perception, and 17th- and 18th-century philosophy. His recent work concerns the philosophy of Iris Murdoch, of whom he writes, "Arguing that neither analytic linguistic philosophy nor Continental existentialism did justice to the nature of morality, Murdoch developed an impressive and influential third approach, though her founding role is perhaps too little appreciated." He has recently edited a volume of essays on Murdoch, Iris Murdoch, Philosopher, and is currently writing a commentary on her book The Sovereignty of the Good. His recent research also includes work on color blindness and disputes and confusions in Early Modern philosophy about the Aristotelian notion of substance.
