Speaker information

José Zalabardo, Professor of Philosophy and Head of the Philosophy Department. He joined UCL in 2000, from the University of Birmingham. He is the author of Introduction to the Theory of Logic (2000), Scepticism and Reliable Belief (2012) and Representation and Reality in Wittgenstein’s Tractatus (forthcoming). He was born in Madrid and educated at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, the University of St Andrews and the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.

Professor Zalabardo will consider some of the difficulties that we encounter when we try to explain the conscious episodes in which we represent things as being a certain way. He will argue that this cannot be achieved in terms of correlations between these conscious episodes and things in the world and he will outline an alternative approach.
