Fightin’ Words November 17, 2009

Posted by Dwight Furrow in Dwight Furrow's Posts, Philosophy.

Via Interfax:

A fight broke out between delegates at an international philosophy forum being held at the Russian Academy of Sciences’ House of Scholars in downtown Moscow, a police source told Interfax on Monday. “The police were informed about the brawl at the House of Scholars at about 12:30 p.m. Several police patrols were sent to the location,” he said. An argument between delegates developed into a fight, with a man and a woman getting hurt. Both received medical aid at the scene of the fight.

I am dying to know what this fight was about—realism vs. anti-realism or maybe the Kantians just had enough of the utilitarians and couldn’t take it anymore. Who knows? But this is so much better than Republicans vs. Democrats.

Since any form of abuse indicates that one does not have a rational argument, I wonder if the KGB infiltrated the proceedings under the guise of philosophers.
