History of Philosophy Society

4th Annual Meeting: Forms of Reason

St. Mary’s University, San Antonio, TX

April 13-14, 2018

The History of Philosophy Society (HOPS) was established to support and encourage scholarship on the history of philosophy from diverse perspectives. We welcome the richness of multiple approaches to the history of philosophy, as well as explorations of various traditions (Africana, American, Asian, Caribbean, European, Latin American, etc.). HOPS provides a forum for different interpretive methods, including, but not limited to, analytical, deconstructive, feminist, hermeneutic, phenomenological, and pragmatist interpretations of texts and philosophers from antiquity through the 19th Century.


Call For Papers: Forms of Reason

Reason has gone by many names (λόγος, ratio, raison, Vernunft, etc.) and has appeared in a variety of forms in the history of philosophy. Reason has been the determining ground of existence; the intelligibility of the world; the specific difference between humans and other animals; the ruling part of the soul; a cognitive faculty; an instrument of legitimation; and has played many other roles as well. The 4th annual meeting of the History of Philosophy Society will explore these roles by surveying the forms in which reason has appeared in the history of philosophy and the way its forms have been contested.

Typically, HOPS submissions focus on a single author from a single period in the history of philosophy prior to the 20th century, but essays treating multiple authors will be considered. Submissions should be prepared for anonymous review with the author’s name, institutional affiliation, and contact information on a separate title page. Papers should be no more than 40 minutes reading length.
