Call for Papers

This international conference celebrates the wide-ranging and influential work of Peter Goldie, Samuel Hall Professor of Philosophy at the University of Manchester from 2005 until his death in 2011.

In addition to the plenary sessions, there will be time devoted to brief submitted papers. We invite papers for presentation in 30-minute sessions (20 minute presentation plus 10 minute discussion).

Please send drafts (abstracts, if preferred), for blind review to [email protected] by 8th June, 2012.  Notification of acceptance will take place by 8th July 2012.
