Obermann Seminar

With a $40,000 grant, Gregory Landini and I directed a week-long seminar on logical atomism, “The Philosophy of Logical Atomism: A Centenary Celebration”. The papers took up themes from Bertrand Russell’s 1918 lectures on logical atomism. The University of Iowa’s Obermann Center for Advanced Studies funded and supported the seminar. The seminar was also co-sponsored by the Bertrand Russell Society (Iowa Chapter).

Many of the papers were subsequently revised and published in the volume, The Philosophy of Logical Atomism: A Centenary Reappraisal. The participants, and some audience members are listed (and pictured!) below.
