CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

We invite submission of
abstracts proposing a paper to be given at a conference on themes related to
Kant’s and Kantian conceptions of freedom at Simon Fraser University on October
2 – 4, 2014. The aim of the conference is to bring together historical and
contemporary approaches to Kant’s theory of freedom. We encourage submissions,
from both approaches, on any aspect of Kant’s theory of freedom, including the
metaphysics and epistemology of freedom and agency, the role of freedom in
Kant’s and Kantian ethical theory and moral psychology, the relation between
the theoretical and practical roles and conceptions of freedom, and related
topics. Confirmed participants include:
Watkins (UC San Diego)
Abstracts should be
between 500 and 1000 words and prepared for blind review. They must be emailed
no later than June 30th, 2014. The body of the email should include
the author’s name and paper title. All authors will be notified of a decision
no later than August 1st, 2014.
The organizers of the
conference intend to propose a volume of essays on the basis of the conference papers.
Submission of an abstract constitutes permission to include the author’s paper
in the proposed volume unless otherwise indicated.
The organizers especially
encourage submissions from members of groups underrepresented in academic philosophy.
Furthermore, two $500 travel stipends are available for graduate students
accepted for inclusion in the conference.
