The Australasian Association of Philosophy conference in Sydney last week was superb. It was the best AAP I've been to, with high quality papers and a great atmosphere from start to finish. Congratulations to the organizers for a terrific job. The next meeting, here at ANU in July 2006, will have a hard act to follow.
I've put some photos online. The photos include a couple of shots of the philosophy joke contest at the banquet, compered somewhat chaotically by me, and won by Kenny Easwaran with a joke involving some ethicists, some decision theorists, and a train ticket. The contest also featured the unveiling of Charles Pigden's "Karen Sketch", featuring the new-style Australian philosophy department populated by Karens (and Aisling) instead of Bruces (and Michael).
