Rachael Wiseman gave a brilliant presentation at this year’s British Society for the History of Philosophy annual conference in Sheffield, as part of the panel on Women in Analytic Philosophy (thanks for Sophia and Veronique for organising). As part of the talk, Rachael set out some of the main philosophical themes that emerge from reading the In Parenthesis philosophers as a school, as well as setting out their methodology, which we are calling depictive metaphysics. Depictive metaphysics is revisionary, and is distinct from descriptive and critical metaphysics. This is partly what we will be discussing at the upcoming annual ‘Women in Philosophy Lecture at Sheffield.
