The Taiwan Metaphysics Colloquium (TMC-series)

Taipei, Taiwan
 
March 2017

The Taiwan Metaphysics Colloquium (TMC-series, TMCs for short) is one of two series of biennial conferences founded in 2013 and is hosted by the Department of Philosophy at National Taiwan University. (The other is the series of Taiwan Philosophical logic Colloquium (TPLCs) established since 2012) Funding is mainly sourced from annual donation by Miss Wendy Huang and Shun Yih Ltd. The primary concern of this funding is to augment the research of contemporary analytic philosophy, especially in logic, metaphysics, epistemology, and some other related fields in Taiwan.
 
The TMC-series is intend to provide a forum for dialogues amongst philosophers who are inclined to re-examine philosophical issues/problems from a certain contemporary perspectives, such as philosophical logic or philosophy of language, to mention a few. TMCs are open not only to scholars in Taiwan. We also invite distinguished international scholars and welcome contributed talks from abroad. In fact, each colloquium in this series is by and large associated with a series of lecture given by Wendy-Huang Visiting Fellows. It is expected that some of the invited/contributed talks will focus on, or have some connections with the main theme of the delivered lectures by the invited Wendy-Huang Visiting Fellow of that year. To enhance a closer connection with other philosophy communities in the neighbourhood, at the early stage of this series of colloquiums, the invited philosophers will be mainly from Asian and Australasian regions. The topics involved range from the traditional issues/concepts/problems in metaphysics to all contemporary brand-new issues such as the metaphysics of modality, metaphysical foundation of mereology, metametaphysics, metaethics, and so on.
 
The first Taiwan Metaphysics Colloquium (TMC-2013), held on October 4, 2013. Professor David Charles (Oriel College, Oxford University) gave the keynote speech −‘Are actions events? An Aristotelian perspective’. The second Taiwan Metaphysics Colloquium (TMC-2015), scheduled as a two day conference, was held on November 13-14, 2015. The main theme of TMC-2015 is ‘Modality and Normativity’. Regarding ‘modality’, Professor Max J. Cresswell gave 2015 Wendy Huang Lectures, a survey of the metaphysical concept of modality from a historical perspective. Two invited speakers Kei Chiba and Adriane Rini presented papers on Aristotle’s notion of modality. Professor Marcia Baron gave the keynote speech for the sessions on normativity and other issues in metaethics. Two invited speakers, Satoshi Kodama and Derek Baker presented some insightful papers. TMC-2017 will be a workshop on Donald Davidson’s philosophy, to be held during 10-11 November 2017, in associated with the celebration of his centenary birthday to honour his seminal contribution to contemporary philosophy.
 
We hope that the establishment of this series will produce some stimulating and inspiring events around Asian area so as to promote the study of metaphysics in Asian area, especially in Taiwan.
