first 2009/10 Royal Institute of Philosophy invited lecture

Royal Institute of Philosophy

The first of the 2009/10 Keele Royal Institute of Philosophy Invited Lecture Series took place last week, on Tuesday, 13 October. In a packed room, the speaker, Dr Paul Faulkner (Sheffield), talked about “Lies and the Problem of Trust”.

As introduced by Dr James Tartaglia (Keele), who chaired the Lecture, the speaker is a world authority on epistemological issue of testimony (acquiring knowledge from what somebody tells you). A related paper to the one presented is available to download:

Apart from the lecture and the subsequent discussion, members in the audience enjoyed free wine, which will be available for the other lectures in the series. (See the full list of lectures in the 2009/10  series)
