Our conference deals with cashing out the relationship between philosophical accounts of laws of nature and complex phenomena, particularly types of mental phenomena such as mental causation and agency. Though papers from all areas of philosophy are welcome, we will give special consideration to papers focused on the conference theme, including: philosophy of science, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of psychology, agency theory, Free-Will, and critiques of scientistic attempts to deal with the mind.

Please send two separate files [.pdf, .doc, or .docx formats only please] (i) one containing only the body of your paper with no identifying information and (ii) another with a title, abstract, contact information, and institutional affiliation to:
