The CEU Department of Philosophy cordially invites you to a talk 
(as part of its Departmental Colloquium series)
Fraser MacBride (University of Cambridge)
"Trope Neglect: The Moore‑Stout Debate"

Tuesday, 31 January, 2012, 5.30 PM, Zrinyi 14, Room 412

In this paper I aim to come to an understanding of  how one trope
proselyte, G.F. Stout, and another apostate, G.E. Moore, contrived to
talk past one another in a famous exchange in Durham in July 1923 ("Are
The Characteristics of Particular Things Universal of Particular?"). The
result was to mislead a generation of British philosophers, leading to
their subsequent neglect of tropes (aka abstract particulars, moments
etc). I suggest that the failure of Stout and Moore to communicate arose
from a deeper disagreement, —that they failed to make explicit—, about
the contents of perceptual experience.
