Peter Hylton Lecture: "Nonsense in the Development of Analytic Philosophy"

September 28, 2017


4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Professor Hylton, Philosophy Department, and 2017-2018 Faculty Fellow, delivers a lecture to kick off the 35th anniversary of the Institute for the Humanities.
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.
A reception will follow.
