Professor Helen Beebee secures Arts and Humanities Research Council grant
(5 June 2016)
Professor Helen Beebee has secured a grant of over £800,000 from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). She will lead a team including SoSS’ Dr Anthony Fisher on a project entitled ‘The age of metaphysical revolution: David Lewis and his place in the history of analytic philosophy’.
Lewis’ widow has given the team access to his philosophical correspondence and other posthumous papers. The research team will select from the thousands of pages of letters the most revealing ones, and edit this material for publication, making it available to future generations of philosophers and historians of philosophy.
