Truth, Grounding and Metametaphysic

Funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation ("The Metaphysics of Representation", 101115-141421), eidos, the Centre for Metaphysics at the University of Geneva, organises a graduate course consisting of five workshops. The aim of the workshops is to give Swiss philosophers, in particular PhD students, the opportunity to discuss some issues of recent controversy with some of the best international philosophers in the field.

The workshops take place at the University of Geneva and are free. Advance Registration is required, as the SNSF asks for a list of participating PhD students. To faciliate discussion, participants should commit to participating in the whole of the workshop.
