CFP: Philosopher's Rally

Philosopher's Rally 2009
12-13 May 2009
University of Twente campus, Enschede, the Netherlands

The third Philosopher's Rally is a two-day international student conference for philosophers, students and for all whose interests are in the field of philosophy. After two successful years in Groningen and Utrecht, now the University of Twente, Enschede will bring together aspiring and vested names in philosophy. The Rally aims to bring those people together to share their latest philosophical ideas, theories and approaches with the audience. The theme of this edition of the Philosophers’ Rally will be “Future Philosophy”. The Philosopher’s Rally 2009 seeks papers representing a broad range of topics covered by this theme. Further, because the University of Twente has a leading position in the philosophy of technology and philosophy of engineering science, presentations in these fields of philosophy are particularly welcomed, though presentations can cover any area of philosophy. Researchers, PhD, master and bachelor students are invited to hand in digital abstracts of approximately 500 words (with a maximum of 800) for a presentation during one of the two days. Presentations will be about half an hour, after whichthere is time for questions and debate.

Abstracts can be sent to: abstracts@ssf-philosophersrally.nl
