The first EPiC meeting of this semester will be Friday the 23rd, in Watson 307 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. Michael Vossen will be presenting work on a paper entitled "Getting It" that presents reasons why a certain type of changes—a subject coming to be able to act, think, speak, or perceive in a particular manner—is such that some of the educational's significance may be articulated in terms of it. The paper then examines the nature of grounds for describing or rejecting descriptions of subjects as having come to "got it."
