We welcome submissions for a conference on themes of authority and testimony in early modern philosophy. Broadly construed, relevant topics may include problems that arise in the shifting emphasis from Scholastic textual authority to accounts of philosophical testimony, the transition from Scholastic to modern conceptions of authority, differences between these two conceptions, or the challenges that emerge from these developments in epistemology, philosophy of religion, natural philosophy, or political philosophy.
Submissions should be in the form of one-page abstracts prepared for blind review and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline has been extended to February 23rd.
Questions should be directed to Daniel Collette (email@example.com) or Steve Burgess (firstname.lastname@example.org).
