    FALL 2020 will focus on: Idealisms and Panpsychisms. In this class on the metaphysics of mind we'll wrestle with some of the strangest theories about minds and thinking ever invented: idealism and panpsychism. Many thinkers in the 17th and 18th centuries were idealists of various stripes: they held that reality as such is in some way dependent on, and even reducible to, mental stuff. Many others were panpsychists of various stripes: they held all things in some sense think. We'll read the works of Descartes, Cavendish, Malebranche, Spinoza, Leibniz, More, Locke, Hume, Berkeley, and Kant. We'll be working with concepts such as mind, idea, perception, sensation, consciousness, intentionality, phenomenal unity, and self-consciousness.

    The content of the seminar focuses on three main topics: metaphysical foundations, language & law, and authority. In the first part we will revisit the Hart v Dworkin debate on the nature of law from the perspective of debates about grounding and reduction in metaphysics. In the second part we will focus on the communicative aspects of law, trying to examine how recent advances in philosophy of language (in particular, pragmatics) can be brought to bear on some crucial aspects of legal communication. We will also revisit some challenges involved in the Hart v Dworkin debate from a methodological perspective, drawing on a possible distinction between metaphysical and interpretative theories of social reality. Finally, we will discuss the nature of practical authority and its bearing on the nature of law.
