Posted: 20 de December de 2011 by Fernando Furtado in Call for Papers, Event

The 38th Conference on Value Inquiry, on “Free Will, Responsibility,
and Science,” will be hosted by Salem State University on April 18-20,
2012. Papers and proposals for papers that address the interplay of
free will with moral responsibility and deliberation, as well as the
role of science in giving scope to notions such as free will and
responsibility, are particularly welcome. Space is limited, so early
submission is strongly encouraged and advised. Papers should be
between 20-25 minutes reading time.

Broad participation is sought, with papers that may be practically or
theoretically oriented. Topics may be disciplinary and range over
issues within a single field of value inquiry such as ethics,
political theory, or economics. Topics may be interdisciplinary and
range over issues between two or more fields of value inquiry. Topics
may even be meta-disciplinary and range over purely conceptual issues.

Robert Audi, John A. O’Brien Professor of Philosophy at Notre Dame,
and Daniel Dennett, University Professor and Co-Director of the Center
for Cognitive Studies at Tufts, will be keynote speakers.
