The AHRC funded project “Method in Philosophical Aesthetics: the challenge from the sciences” (, now in its third year, will host a graduate and early career workshop on the 26th of June at the University of Leeds. The keynote speaker will be Dominic McIver Lopes (UBC). Offers of papers are warmly invited from graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and other early career researchers who do not yet have a tenurable or permanent post.

Papers should be no more that 3,000 words long and may address issues concerning the arts and the aesthetic in the broadest sense. Thus papers on the imagination, on knowledge in and from the arts, on aesthetic value in relation to other kinds of value, on creativity, etc are very welcome. Papers should in some way address the relevance of scientific findings, but need not be sympathetic to empirically oriented philosophy.

Papers should be prepared for blind refereeing and accompanied by a cover sheet identifying the author and providing contact information. The cover sheet should also provide some indication as to your career status to demonstrate eligibility. Papers should be sent to [email protected] by Friday March 9th. Outcome will be communicated by Friday March 30th
