Philosophical Foundations of Law and Finance - 32nd Weekly Meeting

Dear all

The 32nd research seminar on the Philosophical Foundations of Law & Finance warmly welcomes you this Friday, 9 October, at 6:00-8:00pm, in room 516, 309 Regent Street (University of Westminster).

Joe is particularly inspired about the agenda:

We shall review the basics of Aristotelian categoric logic -- potentiality and actuality, and the four causes--and then go directly to the apex of Aristotelian philosophy which is Book 12, part 9 of the Metaphysics ( ). We will do a close reading of "being" as the "unmoved mover". From this peak, much of the rest of philosophy is a slide downwards. So if you want to see what the greatest philosopher after Plato thought about the highest peak of consciousness and God, then this is the session to come to.

I take the occasion to advertise a forthcoming special event: the “Philosophic Foundations of Law and Finance Weekend Re-Treat.” The re-treat will take place in St Mawes, Cornwall, during the 13-15 November weekend. The programme includes walks (hikes or beach strolls), exquisite food, philosophy. Nice and interesting people sharing time together.

Transport costs by train are about £60 but it may be possible to get a group discount. With regard to the accommodation, Omar is arranging to rent a cottage from his boss:

The cottage has three bedrooms which sleep 7 people. However, we can arrange for extra beds. The cost for the cottage is contained. If more people want to join than the places available, other accommodation will be arranged. We apply a first come first served policy, so please email Omar for booking a place and for any further information ( Please decide by this Friday, 9 October.

I look forward to seeing you all at the seminar!

Best wishes
