Topic areas


A one-day in-person symposium in St. Andrews on themes from the recently-published, Contractarianism, Role Obligations, and Political Morality, by Ben Sachs.

One early-career, UK-based scholar with an expertise in contractarianism will be selected to give a talk critiquing Chapters 2-3 of the book (the chapters in which a new version of contractarianism is developed).  If you would like to be this person, please complete the application form here.  (Applications accepted until 30 June.) The selected scholar will get a free copy of the book, have their travel and accommodation expenses paid and will receive equal billing with the speakers listed above.  Applications especially welcome from females and from members of groups that are historically underrepresented in philosophy.
