Speaker information

Timothy Williamson, Oxford University

In his recent publication "Tetralogue I’m Right; You’re Wrong" Timothy Williamson uses a fictional conversation to explore questions about truth and falsity, and knowledge and belief. Is truth always relative to point of view? Is every opinion fallible? Such ideas have been used to combat dogmatism and intolerance, but are they compatible with taking each opposing view seriously? Is one point of view really right and the other really wrong? The book introduces its concerns in an accessible and light-hearted way. In this seminar Timothy Williamson will consider philosophy’s relationship to dialogue, and some questions raised in this book.
