Defend Sensitivity: Closure and the Red Barn Date: 2023-03-23 14:30:37 Time: 4:10 PM Venue: 311, Building 4, Chengjun Yuan Speaker: Huiming REN Category: Talk & Lecture Speaker:Huiming REN, Shandong UniversityVenue:311, Building 4, Chengjun YuanAbstract:I first argue that one does not therefore know by closure that φV~e, where φ isa logical consequence of p, if one comes to know that p on the basis of e. As aconsequence, it is not wrong for Nozick to deny that if I know that I have hands, then I know that I am not a BIV, even though he and Dretske fail to provide an independent reason for doing so. I then argue that in the famous red-barn thought experiment, my How does IPwe Commercialize Patents Globally?
