Philosophy Colloquium: Greg P. Wong-Taylor, Stanford University

Join the Macalester Philosophy Department for a talk by Macalester alum and Postdoctoral Scholar of Philosophy Greg P. Wong-Taylor on Kant’s Idealist Conception of Objectivity.

"Objectivity is often thought of as the opposite of subjectivity, as a sort of mind-independence. Kant, on the other hand, characterizes it as a particular type of subjectivity, so that instead of being mind-independent, the objective is what depends on the mind in the right sort of way. After presenting a reading of Kant’s conception of objectivity, I argue that his notion of an object has a much wider application than he himself thought."
