The BU Workshop on Late Modern Philosophy provides an annual forum for presenting new work on late-eighteenth through early-twentieth-century philosophy.    

THEME FOR 2012: 
The 2012 Workshop will focus on the role of the unconscious, unknown, and illusory in human agency.  We expect that speakers will approach this topic from a variety of directions, including the perspectives of action theory, philosophy of mind, ethics, social and political philosophy, and aesthetics.

The Workshop provides speakers with an opportunity to receive constructive feedback on work in progress.  Papers are distributed in advance.  At the workshop, the participants give brief summaries of their papers; this is followed by an hour of discussion per paper.  The discussion is open to all audience members.
