This year marks the one hundredth anniversary of the
publication of Bertrand Russell's The Problems of Philosophy. Envisioned by
him as an introductory text, Russell also used the work to propose a number
of novel theses which, in tandem with other pioneering material he was
producing during the same period, went on to leave an indelible mark on the
development of analytic philosophy. To mark this anniversary, The Centre for
the Study of Perceptual Experience at Glasgow is convening its yearly
graduate conference on the themes of The Problems of Philosophy: Then and
Now. Papers will present contemporary work on any of the major themes in The
Problems of Philosophy, but we will particularly welcome work on the nature
of experience, perception and sense-datum theory, and on Russell or
Russellian topics in general. We hope to promote fresh engagement with the
problems discussed by Russell, and investigate the possibilities for useful
dialogue between Russell's approach to these issues and contemporary philosophy.
