7th Latin Meeting in Analytic Philosophy

July 1-2, 2013

Institut Jean Nicod, Paris

The Latin Meeting in Analytic Philosophy is a biennial meeting that takes
place under the auspices of the European Society for Analytic Philosophy
(ESAP) the Italian Society for Analytic Philosophy (SIFA), the Spanish
Society for Analytic Philosophy (SEFA), the Portuguese Society for
Analytic Philosophy (SPFA) and the Francophone Society for Analytic
Philosophy (SoPhA).

The “Latin” connection is important. There are a number of affinities –
intellectual, affective and geographic – among Southern European
countries. The main argument in favour of this link is the fact that
France, Spain, Portugal and Italy are faced with similar institutional
problems, which do not affect, say, Anglo-Saxon countries. We believe
academic links among Southern European countries should be reinforced, so
that academic communities in those countries could raise their standing in
the overall international scene. Philosophy is no exception to this and
the joint organization of international conferences in the area is one
obvious way of implementing the idea. Institut Jean Nicod has been playing
a relevant role as far as the above-mentioned joint effort is concerned,
and more so in recent years.

The purpose of the Latin Meetings (organized since 2001 in one of the
Latin European countries) is to provide an opportunity for researchers
(mainly) from those countries to present their work. Such research will be
representative of the research in analytic philosophy carried out in the
so-called Latin countries. All material presented is non-published, one
main goal of the meetings being to enable researchers to present to
minimally demanding audiences work-in-progress versions of articles to be
submitted to international blind-refereed journals. Although this is not a
necessary condition, preference is given to young researchers concluding
their doctoral dissertations, and philosophers who have completed their
PhD within the last 5 years. And although participation is not limited to
researchers from the countries mentioned, preference will be given to
researchers active in universities from those countries and to researchers
that are citizens of those countries working abroad.

Call for abstracts

Those wishing to participate as speakers should submit an abstract (of up
to 1000 words) to latinmeeting2013@gmail.com by MARCH 31, preferably on
topics in the philosophy of language or in the philosophy of mind. The
abstracts should be written in analytic style, making clear the main
thesis of the paper and the arguments in its favour. Submitted abstracts
will be refereed by the Scientific Committee of the Latin Meeting.
Decisions on acceptance will be made by MAY 1. Some of those whose paper
has been rejected might be invited as discussants, depending on the topic
of their work. The organizers will cover two nights of accommodation for
the selected speakers, but not their travel expenses, nor their meals
during the conference.

Local organizers: Dan Zeman and Markus Kneer. For further questions,
please contact the organizers at latinmeeting2103@gmail.com.
