Rationality and Intersubjectivity (RaI)

Convenors: Matheus Valente (LOGOS/València), Víctor M. Verdejo (LOGOS/Pompeu Fabra), and Valen Simpson (València).


This year's iteration of the (online) reading group Rationality and Intersubjectivity is a joint venture between LOGOS and the Valencia Philosophy Lab. 

Initially, we'll be mainly looking into two different themes: (1) Perspectival (First-person) Thought; (2) Communication & Testimony. A provisional list of readings is as follows, although suggestions are always welcome:
