Event details

The conference will explore general issues in the theory of normativity.

This conference is the second in an annual series alternating between the University of Southampton and Humboldt University, Berlin. It aims to bring together philosophers working on normativity, including foundational problems of moral philosophy and practical normativity more generally, reasons and rationality, and epistemic and other forms of normativity. Our primary aim is to provide a forum for lively and constructive exchange amongst philosophers currently working in the field.

The keynote speakers are Professor Nomy Arpaly (Brown University) and Professor Sandford Goldberg (Northwestern University).

This conference is organised in accordance with the BPA/SWIP good practice scheme and is generously supported by the Mind Association, the Aristotelian Society, and the Southampton Ethics Centre.

Call for Papers

The conference will include a number of sessions for submitted papers. Selection will be based on double-blind review of long abstracts (max. 800 words). If you would like to apply, please submit your abstract, anonymised, to Tracy Storey by 17th March 2017. Abstracts should be suitable for a 30-40 minute presentation.
