The work of Mark Eli Kalderon
Mark Eli Kalderon is professor of philosophy at UCL and former editor of the Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society. While his most recent research has been focused on the metaphysics of sense and sensibilia, it draws upon – and has implications for – a breadth of philosophical approaches and topics, not least due to, for example, Prof Kalderon’s own interest in ancient and scholastic theories of perception. His books include Sympathy in Perception, Form without Matter: Empedocles and Aristotle on Color Perception, and Moral Fictionalism.
In Prof Kalderon’s Sympathy in Perception, insights from ancient, phenomenological, analytic, and empirical sources are woven together into a rich and ambitious elaboration and defence of a naïve realist theory of perception. Kalderon develops the view by revisiting and transforming explanatory concepts from the pre-modern era, aiming to ‘contribute to, if not indeed effect, a Kuhnian revolution’ in philosophy of perception.
We intend to hold the conference in-person at the University of Warwick, but places are limited. If you would like to attend, we ask that you email the organisers – Guy Longworth and Jack Shardlow – at firstname.lastname@example.org to register, simply using ‘Kalderon attendance’ as the subject of the email. Since there are limited places, we will be operating on a ‘first-come-first-served’ basis, so please do register your interest right away.
