Claudio Calosi (University of Geneva and USI)
Tuesday, 15 March, 18:00 (CET)
The talk will be held on Zoom, and it will also be streamed on USI Master in Philosophy Facebook page <http://www.facebook.com/usimap>.
To participate:
Please write an email to amm.map at usi.ch <mailto:amm.map at usi.ch> or send a message to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/usimap <http://www.facebook.com/usimap>).
The Abstract of the Talk:
I consider and offer replies to lines of thought in support of some form of metaphysical skepticism, according to which metaphysical claims---e.g., the claim that universals serve as the basis for resemblance between objects, or that sets necessarily exist---are meaningless, false, epistemically inaccessible, or at best pragmatically accepted.

The talk is part of the Lugano Philosophy Colloquia - a series of events organized by:
- Master in Philosophy at USI
- Ratio – Philosophical Association
- Istituto di Studi Filosofici, Lugano
