CFP: North American Wittgenstein Society


16-20 April 2014 (San Diego, CA)

The North American Wittgenstein Society invites papers for its fifteenth annual meeting. The meeting will take place along with the Pacific Division meeting of the American Philosophical Association, to be held April 16-20, 2014 at the Westin Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego, CA.

NAWS was organized by a group of philosophers during the 1999-2000 academic year and put on its first program of papers and commentaries in March of 2000. The organization has tended to show special interest in the work of the later Wittgenstein and its relation to methods of ordinary language philosophers.

The program committee is interested in papers which discuss Wittgenstein’s connection with ordinary language philosophy or in papers which discuss philosophical problems illuminated by Wittgenstein’s later work. Submissions in any area of philosophy, from philosophy of language and mind to ethics and practical ethics, are welcome. Papers which are primarily exegetical are discouraged.

Papers should be prepared for blind review. The author’s name and institution should appear on a separate cover page and not in the paper itself. Submissions (along with the cover page that includes a brief abstract) should be sent as .pdf attachments to an email with the subject line ‘NAWS 2014’. Submissions longer than 3,000 words will not be considered. Please include a word count with your abstract.

The deadline for submission is September 16, 2013

Send your papers to wittgensteinsociety (at) gmail (dot) com
