2012 Colorado Summer Seminar in Philosophy
July 23rd through August 10th, 2012: Boulder, Colorado.
Sponsored by the Department of Philosophy
at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
The Seminar is intended for outstanding undergraduates who are considering graduate school in philosophy. The aim is to introduce students to the atmosphere of a graduate-level seminar, giving participants a chance to explore and sharpen their philosophical abilities before they commit to a graduate program.
The class size will be between 15 and 20. The course is highly intensive, meeting five times a week for three weeks, for three hours a day, with a further student-led discussion session in the evenings. The readings will be dense and difficult, and students will be expected to participate extensively. Several papers will be required. Applicants should have done substantial work in philosophy, including exposure to contemporary analytic methods. Preference will be given to students who have not yet applied to graduate school.
Topic for 2012: The Limits of Knowledge
Application deadline: April 1st, 2012
