Call for abstracts

Abstracts are welcome for the 8th Edition of the Multilateral Kant Colloquium “Kant and the Contemporary World: Philosophy, Science, Politics,” to be held at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Catania, October 11-13, 2018. The theme is to be intended in the broadest possible sense, as involving any aspect of Kant’s philosophy with an impact on issues debated in contemporary philosophy and science, as well as relevant for the most pressing political problems of our time.

Scholars from all over the world will be involved in presentations and discussions of the most up-to-date research on Kant’s philosophy. With the support of the Società Italiana di Studi Kantiani, the conference is part of an annual initiative started in 2008 by an international group of scholars keen on promoting informed debate on the latest developments of Kant scholarships. The current edition aims at highlighting the relevance of Kantian thought with respect to the contemporary world, which becomes increasingly acknowledged in a wide number of issues crosscutting both the theoretical and practical sides of his work. read more...

CFP: Social Trust

Call for Abstracts

The Bowling Green Workshop in Applied Ethics and Public Policy

Social Trust

April 20th-21st, 2018

Keynote Speakers: Cristina Bicchieri (University of Pennsylvania) and Ted Hinchman (University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee)

Political scientists and economists have studied social trust for decades, but social trust is seriously underexplored in philosophical contexts, despite a sizeable literature on personal trust in ethics, psychology, and epistemology. Yet given the centrality of social trust for social order, it seems natural to think that analyses of social trust and its value could help answer some of the central questions in social and political philosophy. The purpose of this workshop is to generate a cross-disciplinary discussion on the nature and value of social trust among philosophers, political scientists, and economists working in the area or interested in doing so. We invite a range of submissions from any theorists, social or normative, working on topics concerned with social trust. read more...

CFP: Refugees and Minority Rights – Acceptable and unacceptable criteria for accepting/ rejecting refugees in a non-ideal world

14-15 June 2018

University of Tromsø – The Arctic University of Norway

Keynote speakers:

David Miller (Oxford), Sarah Fine (KCL), Serena Parekh (Northeastern), Kieran Oberman (Edinburgh), Lea Ypi (LSE), Phillip Cole (UWE)

Call for Papers:

Faced with the worst displacement crisis since the second world war, many states are unlikely to accept as many refugees as they ought, and very few are likely to accept more than they are required. So though some refugees will be admitted, many with sound claims will thus be wrongfully rejected. Are some ways of wrongfully rejecting refugees less objectionable than others? If “yes”, is it then morally justifiable to give priority to refugees who flee from worse forms discrimination or persecution of minority groups than refugees who flee less severe forms of discrimination? read more...
