2016

Hasok Chang, with commentaries by Ilkka Niiniluoto and Uskali Mäki: "Realism as a pragmatist doctrine, or how to make realism more realistic"
Friday 1 April, 14-17, Metsätalo room 10 (3rd Floor)

Summary of Hasok's opening statement: Adopting pluralism and pragmatism does not mean abandoning the pursuit of truth and reality. Rather, it means that we should revise the philosophical concepts of truth and reality so that they become meaningful in scientific and everyday practice. The basis of such revision will be a renewed pragmatist concept of coherence, which pertain to the fitting-together of actions in achieving particular aims.
