ISA 2014: causality slide

Here is the slide I reference in my ISA roundtable presentation on causality.

ISA 2014: causality

April 2nd, 2014 | Posted by ptj in ProfPTJ's Podcasts - (0 Comments)

My comments on a roundtable on causality, in the last panel session of ISA 2014. These are the rough version of a paper I will be presenting in a more refined mix at BISA in June of this year.

The slide I reference will be posted here shortly.

This isn’t actually the title I gave for the talk at the time, and this isn’t the first time I gave the talk — I had given previous versions of it at Oxford and Aberystwyth over the past week too. but I think this is the best version, and I also think that this title captures much better what I am actually talking about. So it will probably be the title of the article or chapter I end up writing. Eventually. In the meantime, here are some slides, and here’s the audio of the talk.

BISA/ISA 2012 — fear of relativism

September 30th, 2012 | Posted by ptj in ProfPTJ's Podcasts - (0 Comments)

Recording of my remarks on a panel on pluralism and diversity in international studies, BISA/ISA joint meeting, Edinburgh, 20 June 2012. A written version of these remarks, featuring the addition of a Star Wars-themed example, appeared here, and I suspect that there will be another version someplace else before too long.

ECPR PoS lecture 5

February 17th, 2012 | Posted by ptj in ECPR | ProfPTJ's Podcasts - (0 Comments)

And now for the grand finale of “PTJ Live in Vienna 2012”: lecture #5, on reflexive theory. Truth to tell I think I said in this lecture somewhat better what I said in Chapter 6 of the C of I book; the theme is the same but the development is somewhat altered for the better.

ECPR PoS lecture 4

The fourth in the epic series. Today’s topic: mind-world monism and why it isn’t subjectivism or idealism, but instead terminates methodologically in the form of ideal-typical analysis championed by Max Weber (with a liberal dash of Dewey and the later Wittgenstein). Three boxes down, one to go.

ECPR PoS lecture 3

The third in the ongoing series. Today’s topic: philosophical realism, and why it is neither just a modified form of neopositivism nor just a quasi-theological statement about metaphysical objects and their properties.

ECPR PoS lecture 2

The second lecture in my five-lecture series “PTJ Live in Vienna.” But no Grammy for me, at least not this year. Today we have a discussion of Popper, falsification, and the strange hybrid of logical positivism and Popperian falsification that is contemporary neopositivism, plus a quick spin through my four-part typology of methodological positions based on wagers about the mind-world hook-up (philosophical ontology).
