Marcus Presents Paper at University of Cambridge Conference

Posted January 20, 2010
Tags Faculty Philosophy
Russell Marcus, the Truax Postdoctoral Fellow of Philosophy, presented a paper titled “The Explanatory Indispensability Argument” on Jan. 17 at the 3rd Cambridge Graduate Conference on the Philosophy of Logic and Mathematics. Russell’s paper argues that the new explanatory argument, because of its equivocation between two senses of ‘explanation,' either is unsound, or fails to extend the standard indispensability argument.

The conference, held at the University of Cambridge, featured keynote speakers Dr. Alex Paseau of Oxford University and Ohio State professor Stewart Shapiro. It was sponsored by the British Society for the Philosophy of Science, The Mind Association, and The Aristotelian Society.
