Topic areas


CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS IN EDITED BOOK (the contributions will be peer-reviewed)

The Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the Central University of Ecuador (UCE) and FILOSÓFICA, Foundation for Philosophical, Political and Cultural Studies, invite the academic community to submit proposals for chapters for an edited book that will address the central aspects of analytic philosophy.

Considering that analytic philosophy is predominantly an Anglophone tradition, this publication undertakes the challenge of fostering spaces for critical discussion in Latin America. Upon finishing the book, readers will gain a panoramic and introductory historical overview of analytic philosophy. They will acquire an understanding of the key authors, theoretical frameworks, characteristic methods, and, above all, the main debates within analytic philosophy. While the topics covered will include the classic language analysis prompted by the linguistic turn, significant contributions in various areas of Philosophy such as metaphysics, epistemology, logic, and philosophy of mind are also central to the discussion.


- Metaphysics and Meta-Metaphysics: Suggested topics include ontological dependence relations and metaphysical structures, identity, modality, possible worlds, non-existent and fictional objects, four-dimensionalism, realism, and anti-realism.

- Philosophy of Language: Suggested topics include meaning, reference, descriptions, proper names and natural kinds, semantic externalism, and theories of truth.

- Philosophy of Mind: Suggested topics include the problem of consciousness, qualia, functionalism, mind-brain identity theory, property dualism, embodied cognition, and extended mind.

- Logic: Suggested topics include first-order and second-order logic, modal logic, Barcan formula, deontic logic, temporal logic, plural quantification, dialetheism, and paraconsistent logics.

- Epistemology: Suggested topics include the Gettier problem, epistemic justification, contextualism, skepticism, epistemic relativism, social epistemology, and virtue epistemology.

- Philosophy of Science: Suggested topics include causality, becoming in modern Physics.

- History of Analytic Philosophy: Suggested topics include logical positivism, critique of positivism, the divergence from idealism.
