CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Fourth Annual Tennessee Value and Agency (TVA) Conference

September 4-5, 2015 // The University of Tennessee-Knoxville

Theme: Knowledge and Agency

Keynote Speakers:
Candace Vogler (David B. and Clara E. Stern Professor of Philosophy, University of
Chicago)
John Schwenkler (Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Florida State University)

Abstracts (of 2-3 double-spaced pages, prepared for blind review) due by May 15, 2015 by e-mail to EJ Coffman (ecoffma1@utk.edu)
Much important and influential recent work in analytic philosophy lies at the intersection of epistemology, ethics, and philosophy of action and explores some or other of the following broad questions:
– Are action-theoretic concepts central to the nature of knowledge?
– What must you know in order to act (rationally, intentionally, freely, accountably)?
– How can you know about what you do (rationally, intentionally, freely, accountably)?
Abstracts that engage these and allied questions concerning the relationships among knowledge and agency will be considered for the 2015 TVA Conference. Sessions will be 75 minutes long, with roughly 40 minutes for the presentation and 35 minutes for group discussion.
We aim to notify authors of selected abstracts by June 1, 2015. If your abstract is selected and childcare duties render your attendance difficult, conference organizers will try to find a way for your childcare needs to be met.
The TVA conference (http://web.utk.edu/~philosop/TVA/conference.html) is an annual event aimed at encouraging philosophical conversation about topics pursued by established research clusters at The University of Tennessee Department of Philosophy.
