Inquiry into reasons and reasoning has long occupied a central place in the major philosophical disciplines. From logic and ethics to epistemology and the history of philosophy, some of our discipline’s most creative and innovative work concerns practical and theoretical rationality.
The Georgetown University Philosophy Department invites submissions related to the theme "Reasons and Reasoning." Possible topics include: internalist vs. externalist theories of reasons, reductivism vs. non-reductivism about reasons talk, the cognitive scientific basis of reasoning, implicit bias, the roles of background assumptions and/or practical competencies in reasoning, historical theories of inference, etc. As this list indicates, our theme should be interpreted liberally, including contributions from meta-ethics, moral psychology, cognitive science, epistemology, logic, practical reasoning, political philosophy, etc. We encourage submissions from both the analytic and continental traditions, whether historically or programmatically inclined.
