The Philosophy Department wins two grants from the Humboldt-Princeton Strategic Partnership.

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

In this year’s round of grants given out under the Humboldt-Princeton Strategic Partnership, philosophers won two separate grants. Daniel Garber, Des Hogan, and Dominik Perler won funding for two symposia to be held in Princeton and Berlin during AY2015-16. The symposia will study the relations between conceptions of knowledge and theories of causation in early modern and contemporary philosophy. Michael Smith and Thomas Schmidt won funding for a graduate seminar on rationalism vs sentimentalism that they will teach jointly, half in Berlin and half in Princeton, during the summer of 2016.  In both cases, the grants will provide funding for faculty and students from each institution to attend the events that take place at the other.
