St. Louis Annual Conference on Reasons and Rationality provides a forum for new work on practical and theoretical reason, broadly construed.

We are seeking 3-5 more speakers for SLACRR 2022.

Please submit a blinded abstract of 750-1500 words by January 15, 2022 to [email protected].

In writing your abstract, please bear in mind that full papers should be suitable for a 30 minute presentation.

SLACRR includes papers in ethics, epistemology, and other areas of philosophy that deal with reasons, reasoning, or rationality. For instance, we would be interested in papers exploring such questions as:

  • What is the relation between reasons for actions and reasons for beliefs?
  • What are the sources of our reasons for belief?
  • How are features of one's psychology relevant to reasons?
  • What is the relation between reasons and what we ought to do or believe?
  • What is the relation between reasons and value?
  • Are the requirements of practical and theoretical rationality normative?
  • What is the relation between individual rationality and collective rationality?

Of course, this is just a small sample of questions. Further questions can also be directed to [email protected]
