The Metaphysics, Language and Epistemology speaker series was created in 2019 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"

The MLE Speaker Series is currently on hold but we hope to bring it back soon!
