SCP Mountain-Pacific Regional Conference – January 13th-14th, 2012

Conference theme/title – “Philosophy among the Disciplines”

The plenary speakers will address the relationships between philosophy and psychology, biology, and theology, respectively. We especially invite papers on philosophical questions of interdisciplinary interest and other related themes. What does philosophy have to contribute to and learn from other disciplines? What is the role of philosophy in education, and in the academy? What are the prospects of experimental philosophy? What is philosophy’s methodology, and what ought it be?

Papers should be of 25-30 minute reading time, prepared for blind review, and submitted in an easily accessible electronic format to David Vander Laan. Decisions will be made by Oct. 31.
