Workshop on the Epistemology of Modality, call for abstracts

International Workshop on the Epistemology of Modality

Faculty of Letters, University of Lisbon
29-31 August 2013

Van Inwagen once wrote (in his influential paper ‘Modal epistemology’ from 1998) that “modal epistemology is a subject about which little is known”. Today, the discipline has flourished. A lot has been written since then and research on the topic continues to be the focus of a large community of philosophers. We certainly know more today about the topic than we did in 1998, but it would be daring to say that our epistemic situation is much better. The discipline has witnessed a Rationalist Renaissance and is now witnessing what might end up being an anti-rationalist turn. This workshop aims to provide a forum for discussion and to reflect, via the contributed talks and informal discussions, the state of art of the discipline.

Call for Abstracts
We invite submissions of long abstracts

(1000-2000 words) on any aspect in the epistemology of modality. The time slot is 90 minutes distributed thus: 50’ talk + 40’ discussion.

For refereeing purposes, abstracts should contain a clear statement of the thesis that will be defended in the talk as well as of the argumentative strategy. They should be prepared for blind-refereeing.

We aim at accepting 5 abstracts.

Submission procedure: Please send your abstract to EpistemologyModalityLisbon@gmail.comas an attachment (.pdf preferred).

The subject of the e-mail should contain the word ‘submission’.

The body of the email should include your name, affiliation, abstract title, and the email address you want us to use to communicate with you.

Deadline for submissions: 28th February 2013.
Notification of acceptance/non-acceptance: 28th May 2013.
