Philosophy and History - Coining, Context, Contingency

Tuesday 19th June, 7.30 at the Rose and Crown, Tintern



Bob Clarke

NEXT MEETING 19th June 2018

Bob will ask: What is the most fruitful way for philosophy and history to interact?. He will explore a number of issues, such as: Does human nature change with time and are these changes reflected in our coining of new philosophical terms? To what extent is it important to place philosophers into their own historical and social context? How should our recognition of accidental contingencies in human affairs be reflected in our philosophy? And he will examine concepts like the Zeitgeist,  Historicism in Philosophy and the very contingency of the human species.
