This workshop is dedicated to conceptual engineering – one of today’s hot topics in metaphilosophy. More specifically, it aims to foster research on foundational issues of conceptual engineering, its usefulness and limitations, and its place in philosophical methodology. We invite contributions to any of these or related topics.
