Is epistemology, the theory of knowledge, is practical? Yes, and this salon series by Arkadiusz Synowczyk will prove why and how. Join us for its third episode where we will discuss how, given the previous advice, one should approach concepts – the building blocks of our thoughts.
In this episode, we will discuss the nature of concepts as mental entities, which, in many cases, can and could have been different. In the process of doing so, we will illuminate some central issues of religion, psychological problems, ethics and politics.
Through thought-provoking conversations, insightful exchanges, and collaborative exploration, this salon promises to deepen your understanding of the multifaceted nature of concepts and their impact on our lives. Join us as and explore how epistemology is, yet again, an extremely practical subject.
Key discussion points:
- What the nature of reality and mind imply about concepts?
- What different theories of concepts have been there and what do they have in common?
- How do differences in concepts influence our thinking about religion, psychology, ethics, and politics?
Join us for an engaging and intellectually stimulating session, where you’ll have the opportunity to contribute your insights, challenge existing paradigms, and broaden your understanding of the intricate relationship between concepts and real life.
