Celebrating Marion Tapper’s Contribution to Philosophy in Australia

About the Plenary Panel

Co-hosted with the Australasian Association of Philosophy

Marion made an indelible contribution to philosophy in Australia through teaching continental philosophy at the University of Melbourne, being instrumental in the establishment of continental philosophy bodies such as the Melbourne School for Continental Philosophy, and advocating for the role of women in philosophy.

The plenary will reflect on Marion’s life and work via an answer to the question ‘What is the art of philosophical interpretation?’ to consider how Marion’s research and teaching provided an exemplar of such an art.
