Peter Hylton Lecture: “Nonsense in the Development of Analytic Philosophy”  Add To Calendar

September 28, 2017 at 4 PM  

Peter Hylton Lecture

"Nonsense in the Development of Analytic Philosophy”"

This talk concerns the concept of nonsense. A version of such a concept, based on the idea of verifiability or something similar, is often thought to play a central role in twentieth-century analytic philosophy. In this lecture I consider the role that the concept of nonsense actually plays in the work of some of the leading figures of that tradition.
