Topic areas


We call for historical, systematic, and original investigations of emotion. Papers may deal with topics from philosophical anthropology, philosophy of mind, ethics, epistemology, and/or aesthetics. Possible lines of inquiry include: What is emotion? How are the affective aspects of human existence related to and distinct from the rational and volitional aspects? What is the role of emotion in ethical action and in achieving happiness? How do the emotions reveal or obscure the good, the true, and the beautiful?

Email abstracts of 500 words to [email protected] by December 9th, 2011. Decisions will be made by January 1st, 2012.

Papers will be expected to have a reading time of half an hour.
