Speaker Series


The Princeton Workshop in Normative Philosophy (PWNP) provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent work in normative philosophy, including work in metaethics, normative ethics, applied ethics, aesthetics, political philosophy, philosophy of law, and epistemology. The workshop hosts presentations by Princeton faculty, visiting scholars, and outside faculty.

The PWNP series is on hold for the 2020-2021 AY but we look forward to bringing it back for the next academic year. For a list of past speakers, please visit the PWNP website.



The Metaphysics, Language and Epistemology speaker series was founded last year by grad student Ellie Cohen to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of contemporary work in metaphysics, language, and epistemology, construed broadly to include areas of metaphysics, language, epistemology, philosophy of science and math, logic - and in some cases, history of early and late analytic - in the hopes of establishing a strong academic community for the MLE students and faculty at Princeton.

In its inaugural year, the MLE Speaker Series featured the following visiting speakers:

Branden Fitelson (Northeastern) - "How to Model the Probabilities of Conditionals"

Jason Turner (University of Arizona) -  "Expressive Power Argurments in Metaphysics"

Jennan Ismael (Columbia University) - "Rethinking Time and Determinism"

Maegan Fairchild (University of  Michigan) - "Plenitude and Humility"

Due to current circumstances, the MLE Speaker Series is on hold for the 2020-2021 AY but we hope to bring it back in 2021-2022.
