For the third meeting of SIPHOP, we invite papers that explore the philosophical significance of early modern philosophy in the development of phenomenology.  

Steven Galt Crowell (Joseph and Joanna Nazro Mullen Professor of Philosophy, Rice University), keynote address: "The Role of Leibniz in Heidegger's Metaphysical Decade"

Michael Kim (Villanova University) “Logic as Transcendental Monadology: Husserl’s Transformation of Leibniz’s Metaphysics”

Robin Muller (The New School for Social Research), “Ways of Seeing and Ways of Mattering: Language and Affectivity in Herder and Heidegger”

Matthew Shockey (Indiana University South Bend), “Heidegger’s Kantian Cartesianism"

Daniel Robert Siakel (University of California, Irvine), “Hume and Husserl on Time and Time-Consciousness”

Meghant Sudan (Concordia University, Montreal), “From Criticism to Self-Criticism: Husserl's Critique of Modern Empiricist Nominalism”

Katherine Ward (Georgetown University), “Understanding The Age of the World Picture: Science and Its Modern Inheritance”

For more information, contact James Reid ([email protected])



Submissions on Kant will be considered, but because Kant has been the focus of previous seminars, preference will be given to papers focusing on other figures.  Husserl’s and Heidegger’s various engagements with Descartes and Kant are clear choices, but papers dealing with less obvious topics and lines of influence are also welcome—Scheler’s Pascalian inheritance, e.g., or Husserl’s indebtedness to Hume.  Presenters will have approximately 45 minutes to read, followed by 30 minutes of discussion.  Completed papers should consequently be 4500-5000 words, excluding notes.  Please send abstracts of no more than 750 words prepared for blind review to James D. Reid ([email protected]) by 25 July 2014 (extended!).  Steven Crowell (Rice) is this year’s keynote speaker, and there will be slots for 6-8 additional papers.  The meeting will be held at the Metropolitan State University of Denver, 20-21 September 2014.
