Workshop on Late Modern Philosophy is an annual
forum for presenting new work on late-eighteenth
THEME FOR 2014:
The theme for the
2014 workshop is the nature of philosophy.
Papers might address the following themes: does
philosophy have distinctive methods? How does it
relate to fields such as history, literature,
political science, psychology, and logic? Can it
be (or must it be) systematic? What sorts of
questions can it answer? What sorts of limitations
does it encounter?
The Workshop provides speakers with an opportunity
to receive constructive feedback on work in
progress. Papers are distributed in advance
and should be read prior to the workshop. At
the workshop, the participants give brief
summaries of their papers; this is followed by an
hour of discussion per paper. The discussion
is open to all audience members.
