CALL FOR PAPERS
Philosophy, Virtue, and Personhood
A Graduate Student Philosophy Conference at Loyola University Chicago April 11-12, 2014
Submission Deadline: December 15, 2013 Keynote Speakers:
Gabriel Richardson Lear (University of Chicago) ␣ Hanne Jacobs (Loyola University Chicago)
Ancient to contemporary thinkers have struggled with questions about the transformation of the self and what it means to live well. Are multiple conceptions of the good life compatible with more univocal doctrines of goodness and wellbeing? We want to explore what role, if any, philosophy can play in helping us to constitute ourselves as persons, become better selves, or live better lives. The philosophy department at Loyola University Chicago invites papers from a broad range of philosophical perspectives, operating in both continental and analytic traditions, on topics pertaining to the role of philosophy in shaping the self and in living a good life.
All submissions should be submitted for blind review by December 15, 2013. Full papers (up to 3,000 words), with 100 word abstracts, should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org in .DOC or .PDF format.
