In order to strengthen the ties between ILLC and the department of philosophy, the department of philosophy will have their 'afdelingsborrel' in the common room of the ILLC on Monday 9 December 2013 t. This event was initially planned for 28 October last, but was then canceled because of bad wheather condition. Before the 'borrel', we have organised a short scientific session as well, with three 10-minutes talks featuring:
- Christian Skirke: Does it Matter Who's Right? A Few Remarks on Disagreement.
- Michiel van Lambalgen: Kant, developmental psychology and time
- Ulle Endriss: Justice and Computation
The scientific session starts at 16.30. Everybody is invited, also for the 'borrel' afterwards.
