International Conference on THE PHILOSOPHY OF HILARY PUTNAM

Hilary Putnam, a versatile genius, has been an initiative figure in the multifarious areas of philosophy, mathematics, philosophy of science and computer science. He is often called the ‘renaissance man of philosophy’ in the sense that he could make path breaking theories in the emerging fields of Epistemology, Metaphysics, Ethics, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Language, Logic, Mathematics, which are excellently interpretative and thought provoking, thereby creating a history in itself. He espoused original ideas digging the depth of conceptual imagination of scientific erudition along with sticking to the moral visions of humanistic ideals and concerns about the orientation towards a meaningful life. For Putnam, ‘Philosophy is not only concerned with changing our views, but also with changing our sensibility, our ability to perceive and react to nuances’. Leading philosophy towards constant dynamic expeditions and holding on to an incredible style of self critique, Hilary Putnam, has over the five decades, has been in the process of making the laudable contributions in philosophy and science by being a beacon to a series of philosophical generations.
