Moore, Evolution of Modern Metaphysics

The first meeting of the reading group on A. W. Moore’s The Evolution of Modern Metaphysics: Making Sense of Things took place on Thursday (2 August), approximately from 12 to 1.30, in CM1.24 (Claus Moser Research Centre, Keele University).

I recorded the discussion and I post it here (Part 1 and Part 2). In addition to me, participants included Peter Fletcher, Stephen Leach, Geraldine Coggins, Christopher Zebrowski, Philippe Blenkiron, Arran Goodfellow and Adnan Mhidin. From time to time, expressing amazement, one can also hear Geraldine Coggins’s 4-month old daughter.

If you have any comments or questions, do not hesitate to post a note through this blog!

We started with the Preface and the Introduction, which I presented at the beginning of the meeting. We continued with discussion until the end of the session.

For the next meeting, we will focus on Chapter 1, Descartes: Metaphysics in the Service of Science. The chapter will be introduced by Peter Fletcher.

The day, time and place for the new meeting will be posted here before long.
