    • The Monist, 100:3 July 2017

    MONIST: LAWS OF NATURE

    The Monist, 100:3 July 2017

    Deadline for submissions: July 31, 2016

    Advisory Editor: Angela Breitenbach, Cambridge (ab355@cam.ac.uk) and Michela Massimi, Edinburgh (michela.massimi@ed.ac.uk)

    Kant argued that the laws of nature were, in part, the result of our mind projecting an order onto nature. This issue of The Monist seeks to assess the prospects of such a conception of laws for contemporary debates in the philosophy of science. We invite contributions addressing questions such as: How is ‘projecting an order onto nature’ properly to be understood? What good can a conception of laws in these terms be for on-going debates between realist and empiricist approaches to laws of nature? Can a Kantian view shed light on the foundations of modern physics (and especially on quantum mechanics) or on contested issues concerning the nature of laws in biology; and might such a view advance current debates over the unity or disunity of science?

    We encourage all intending authors to make direct contact with the Advisory Editors, Angela Breitenbach and Michela Massimi.

    Submissions should not exceed 7,500 words, should be prepared for blind refereeing, and should include a brief abstract. Please also refer to the submission guidelines:

    • Journal for the History of Analytical Philosophy

    Method, Science, and Mathematics: Neo-Kantianism and Early Analytic Philosophy

    Call for submissions to a special issue of the Journal for the History of Analytical Philosophy

    A widely held view is that the late nineteenth and early twentieth century’s revolutions in logic, mathematics, and physics decisively overturned the Kantian theory of knowledge and provided the most significant intellectual motivations for early analytic philosophy. But neo-Kantian philosophers at the time defended philosophical positions in response to early analytic philosophy and the revolutionary developments that inspired it. Some neo-Kantians were partly responsible for those developments in mathematics and physics, while others took the developments on board and defended versions of Kantian philosophy that were consistent with them.

    The issue focuses on the work and influence of Hermann von Helmholtz and Ernst Cassirer. Helmholtz’s engagement with the analytic tradition turns on his thought concerning the foundations of geometry, including his theory of measurement, and the place of those views in his general theory of knowledge. Cassirer’s views on the significance of the logic of relations, his response to Bertrand Russell’s criticism of his very early philosophy of mathematics, and his affinities with structuralist theories of mathematics such as Richard Dedekind’s demonstrate his enduring engagement with questions central to analytic philosophy. Authors may also take inspiration from the work of Helmholtz and Cassirer to conceive of contemporary neo-Kantian projects, especially in the philosophy of science and of mathematics, and in related areas in epistemology. The proposed volume will emphasize the ongoing intellectual exchange between the neo-Kantian and analytic traditions.

    We intend to publish selected papers in a special issue of the Journal for the History of Analytical Philosophy (http://jhaponline.org/), an open access venue that aims to promote research in and provide a forum for discussion of the history of analytic philosophy.

    Papers should be submitted to Scott Edgar (scott.edgar@smu.ca) and Lydia Patton (critique@vt.edu).

    l  Initial submission deadline (2500-4000 words): July 31, 2016

    KANT MULTILATERAL COLLOQUIUM

    Submission deadline for US participants: February 1, 2016

    Hofstra University, with the sponsorship of the North American Kant Society, invites submissions for the next Kant Multilateral Colloquium, to take place at Hofstra University (Hempstead, NY) on August 7-9, 2016. The theme of the meeting is: Kant on Violence, Revolution, and Progress: Historical, Political, and Metaphysical Themes. “Revolution” and “progress” are interpreted broadly, in order to include not only their historical or political meaning, but also Kant’s “Copernican Revolution” in metaphysics, science, aesthetics, religion, etc.

    The Multilateral Colloquium is an annual conference involving approximately forty participants from Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, and, more recently, the USA and Russia. This is the first time the meeting will be hosted in the USA. Each of the seven participating countries will be assured up to five slots for speakers.

    Please send all papers electronically to Robert Louden at Louden@Maine.edu. Notices of acceptance will be issued by April 15, 2016. Submissions should be prepared for blind review and be limited to 4000 words, including footnotes and references (longer submissions will not be considered). Please prepare your file in PDF format, include an abstract of a maximum of 250 words, and a word count at the end of the paper. Contact information should be sent in a separate Word file.

    Presentations should not exceed 35 minutes, followed by 15-20 minutes of discussion. All accepted papers will be available in the members only section of the NAKS website. Papers already presented at other conferences (including NAKS meetings) may not be submitted. Presenters must be members of NAKS in good standing.

    2016 UK KANT SOCIETY ANNUAL CONFERENCE

    Submission deadline: June 1st, 2016 

    Time: September 5-6, 2016

    Place: The University of Southampton

    Conference title: "Kant, Normativity and Naturalism"

    How should we understand normativity and its relation to the natural world? Is it true that the scientific representation of nature ultimately has no room for normative phenomena? How, if at all, can such phenomena be ‘naturalized’? Do they need to be? The dominant terms in which these problems continue to be framed owe an enormous debt to Kant. This conference aims to explore the problem of normativity and naturalism in Kant’s own work, to probe Kant’s legacy in shaping current approaches to the problem, and to envision afresh the contribution his thought may yet make. The conference welcomes papers on all themes related to Kant’s philosophy, and in particular hopes to foster debate on the above.

    Keynote Speakers:

    Hannah Ginsborg (University of California, Berkeley)
    Marcus Willaschek (Goethe-Universität)
    Kenneth Westphal (University of Boğaziçi)

    Call for Papers:

    Papers are invited from academics and postgraduate students on any aspect of Kant's philosophy, though submissions dealing specifically with the conference theme are encouraged.

    If you are interested in giving a presentation, please complete the form found here:
