Jessica Leech is a Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Sheffield. Her research interests, contemporary and historical, centre around the topic of modality. She has written on topics in the metaphysics of modality such as relative necessity, and on the nature of logical laws. In her writing she has also explored what Kant had to say about modality, and issues arising from that. She is in the final stages of writing a book that attempts to draw out Kant's views on modality, and apply them to contemporary issues in the metaphysics of modality.
Students and members of the Society who wish to dine with the speaker after the talk should email the Editor, Matthew Soteriou (M.J.Soteriou@warwick.ac.uk), by the end of the week. There are a small number of subsidized places available at dinner for graduate students and other members.
