Humboldt Normativity Conference 2016

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, 27 - 29 June 2016

Keynote speakers: John Broome (Oxford), Michael Smith (Princeton)

This conference will bring together philosophers working on normativity. We invite submissions on foundational problems of moral philosophy, on practical normativity more general, on reasons and rationality, and on epistemic and other forms of normativity. Our primary aim is to provide a forum for lively and constructive exchange amongst philosophers currently working in the field. Over and above the two keynote talks, there are eight slots for contributed papers. Please submit an abstract (800-1500 words, prepared for blind review) until 15 February 2016 as a pdf file to [email protected]. Papers should be suitable for a 30 minutes presentation.

Organizers: Jan Gertken, Benjamin Kiesewetter, Thomas Schmidt, Department of Philosophy, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

(This is envisaged to be the first of a series of annual conferences held at HU Berlin and at the University of Southampton.)
