David Barnett – Counterfactual Entailment

David Barnett
Counterfactual Entailment

Counterfactual Entailment is the view that a counterfactual conditional is true just in case its antecedent entails its consequent. I present an argument for Counterfactual Entailment, and I develop a strategy for explaining away apparent counterexamples to the view. The strategy appeals to the suppositional view of counterfactuals, on which a counterfactual is essentially a statement, made relative to the supposition of its antecedent, of its consequent.

David Barnett is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Prior to arriving at CU in 2005, he held positions at the University Vermont and Davidson College. In 2008, he was a visiting professor at NYU, where he obtained his PhD in in 2003. Barnett works mainly in philosophy of language and metaphysics, but also has interests in philosophy of mind. He has written on the nature of indeterminacy and vagueness, the necessity of origins thesis, the theory of stuffs, scientific essentialism, the nature of conscious beings, personal identity, and the semantics of conditional statements. He is currently developing a novel theory of content.

Dora Osborne – What Remains: Trauma and the Archive in Contemporary German Memory Culture

Dr Dora Osborne (University of Nottingham)
What Remains: Trauma and the Archive in Contemporary German Memory Culture

The archive stands in complex relation to history and fiction, perhaps no more so than when it carries the traces of traumatic impact. The notions of Trauma, Fiction, History, brought together in this research group, are of critical concern to post-1945 German Studies. In their configuration they ask questions of memory and witness, but also, increasingly and urgently, of the archive. What kind of archive material remains ‘after Auschwitz’? And how is this used by artists and authors in the attempted representation of Germany’s traumatic past? Drawing on examples from recent German-language literature (Durs Grünbein) and visual art (Anselm Kiefer), this paper will consider the relation of archive to Trauma, Fiction, History.

in Academic Service - Archive by on November 17th, 2011

Event Date: 17 November 2011
Room 320, Birkbeck Main Building
Birkbeck, University of London
Malet Street
London WC1E 7HX

Developing Your Research Career – Publishing a Book

Speakers: Stephen Frosh (Birkbeck) & Catherine Gray (Palgrave)

This session is offered by Stephen Frosh, who has published 15 academic books and edits two series for Palgrave, and Catherine Gray, who is Publisher, Social and Professional Studies, in the College Division of Palgrave, responsible for paperback publishing aimed primarily at students but also practitioners in a number of academic fields. Stephen will talk about issues involved in preparing a proposal and selecting a publisher, and the kinds of things that reviewers are looking for. Stephen will also comment on the importance of books in relation to the advancement of academic careers. Catherine will describe the commissioning process from the publisher’s perspective, including issues such as whether a book might be seen as ‘academic’, ‘student’ or ‘trade’; what makes it more likely that it will be taken on by a publisher; and the realities of publishers’ aspirations about sales.
