The 2019 Hannah Arendt and Reiner Schurmann Annual Symposium in Political Philosophy

What is the relationship between concepts and experience? Is experience conceptual “all the way down,” as John McDowell holds? Or are there aspects of experience that are not usefully characterized as conceptual, as Hubert Dreyfus holds? This symposium surveys recent work on these debates, work that explores the possibility that the mind’s relationship to the world takes a variety of different forms.

The symposium has an unusual structure: All presentations are going to be about other presenters’ work, and the symposium as a whole will presuppose familiarity with that work. All of the relevant background readings are available on the symposium’s website (www.varietiesofintentionality.com).
