All meetings take place 3.15-5pm in ERI 149. All welcome!

Abstract

It is commonly assumed that besides knowledge of facts or truths, there is also knowledge of things - for example, we commonly say that we know people or know places. We could call this "objectual knowledge". In this talk, I'll try to raise doubts about the idea that there is a sui generis objectual knowledge that is distinct from knowledge of truths.
