Philosophy of Science working group

Professor Jim Joyce will visit the Philosophy of Science working group

You can find a copy of the paper on which the talk will be based at http://www-personal.umich.edu/~jjoyce/papers/APA201.pdf

This is a draft, very much in progress*.  You can safely skip sections 3&4, since I will be focusing on the material in sections 5&6 (with (1&2 being introductory).  I should have overhead slides to hand out Tuesday or Wednesday.  If you don't want to read the paper, those will be helpful.  Let me know if you would like me to send them to you.   If I have time, which I probably won't, I might say a few things about an interesting example in an article by M. Caie that is about to appear in the Phil Review.
