October marks the beginning of a fresh series of free public lectures presented by the Philosophy Department at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, in collaboration with the Royal Institute of Philosophy. The first lecture of the season, which will be held on Thursday 23rd October and titled Errors and mistakes: so wot?” will serve as an introduction to this year’s series and ask key questions about the nature of concepts like error, mistakes and failure. Some key examples from science, technology and politics will also be explored alongside mistakes and errors from a range of philosophers. The lecture will be delivered by Dr Yasemin J. Erden, Programme Director for Philosophy at St Mary’s. Yasemin’s research interests range from interdisciplinary (with science and technology) to philosophy of language, aesthetics, and ethics. Her most recent publications include topics in thinking, agency and recognition; neural implants and human identity; and nanovaccines and global equity. All lectures are free and open to the public with no registration required. Taking place in the Senior Common Room from 5.15pm – 6.00pm, the lecture will be followed by a 45 minute Q&A session.
