AAP conference this week

Over the next few days, I'll be at the AAP - Australasian Association of Philosophy - conference, which is being held in Melbourne again this year. Transmission will be intermittent, alas.

I'll be giving a paper on Thursday evening: "NOMA No More!" Attacking the discredited NOMA Principle is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel; however, this particular fishy theory has more lives than Doctor Who, so it's worth taking another shot at it.

Damn, missed it again. Simon Blackburn would be good to hear. Looking at the timetable, there probably wouldn't have been much to justify the $120 a day cost just to catch a paper or 2 that I'd not understand well. :)

Hope the paper goes well. Noma is like a cockroach.

Yes, I'm looking forward to dragging myself in there early on whichever day it is for Simon Blackburn's paper.
