The CEU Department of Philosophy cordially invites you to a talk

by 
Scott Austin (Texas A&M)
on
"Is There Appearance? The Problem of Parmenidean Doxa"
 
Tuesday, 26 October, 2010, 4.30 PM, Zrinyi 14, Room 412
 
ABSTRACT
Even if Parmenides was a pluralist, rather than a monist, it is not clear why there is anything other than Parmenidean Being in the universe.  Why is there Appearance?  Who is it that sees it?  Are the 'mortals' themselves beings?  Or are they other than Being?  Or are they illusory?  To whom does Appearance appear?  What is the difference between Being and Appearance?  And, finally, why is Being such that it can be believed to be otherwise than it is?
