American Voice In Philosophy: Two Consecutive Conferences at University College Dublin, June 18-21

Many thanks to Sarin Marchetti at University College Dublin for writing in with the following announcement.  Note that there are two associated CFP’s, both due March 30.  More information here and below.

Conference I: Philosophies of Philosophy

June 18 and 19, 2013

This conference marks 20 years of publication of the International Journal of Philosophical Studies (Taylor and Francis).  From its very first volume published in 1993, IJPS has taken an inclusive view of philosophy and has aimed to publish articles of high quality from all Western philosophical traditions.  Our goal always was to provide a forum for publishing on a broader range of issues and approaches to philosophy than has been the norm in other philosophical journals.  It is therefore appropriate to mark 20 years of the publication of the journal, with a glance back to its predecessor Philosophical Studies– Ireland  (1951-1992), through a conference that attempts to achieve a better understanding of philosophy as a discipline.  The keynote speakers of the conference, many of whom are members of the editorial board of theInternational Journal of Philosophical Studies, include:

Professor Tim Williamson (Oxford)

Professor Paul Horwich (NYU) (Responding to Tim Williamson on Wittgenstein’s Metaphilosophy)

Professor Rae Langton(MIT)

Professor Philip Pettit (Princeton)

Professor Katalin Farkas (University of Budapest)

Professor Jonathan Weinberg (University of Arizona)

Professor Paul Boghossian (NYU) – to be confirmed


Professor Dermot Moran (UCD, Founding Editor of IJPS).

More plenary speakers will be announced soon.
