Epistemologists often assume that rationality bears an important connection to the truth. In this lecture, Sophie Horowitz examines the implications of this commitment for permissivism: if rationality is a guide to the truth, can it also allow some leeway in how we should respond to our evidence?
Neo-Aristotelian virtue ethics is one of the most theoretically well-developed approaches to virtue currently on offer.

The centrality of de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex and her attention to gender oppression have over-shadowed her broader political vision. In Emancipatory Thinking, Elaine Stavro brings together her existential insights and materialist disposition that underpin her activism and help her navigate the dilemmas raised by revolutionary thinking in the post-war and post-'68 periods. Drawing from a range of work, including novels, autobiographical writings, philosophic essays, Stavro explains freedom as a movement requiring both personal and collective transformation. Applying de Beauvoir’s problematic of embodied and situated subjectivity to recent debates within gender, literary, sociological, cultural and political studies, Emancipatory Thinking provides a lens to explore the current political and theoretical landscape.
On the face of it, we hold people responsible for their opinions. For instance, we blame them (“How can you think this?!”) for what they think. Also, we address their beliefs directly, by arguing with them and offering reasons for thinking otherwise, and do not just encourage them to rethink some matter. This practice seems to presuppose that we have some sort of direct control over what we believe. However, on reflection it seems plain that we cannot control our beliefs in the way we control our actions: we cannot believe at will. In this talk, Christian Kietzmann will offer an account of how we enjoy active and direct discretion over what we believe.
