The Philosophy of E. J. Lowe: a Memorial Conference

Posted: 28 de March de 2014 by Fernando Furtado in Call for Papers, Event, News

Sunday 27th July – Tuesday 29th July

Professor E. J. (Jonathan) Lowe (1950-2014) spent the last thirty four years
of his life at Durham University, during which time he established himself
as one or the world’s leading metaphysicians and inspired philosophers all
over the world. This conference will celebrate his life and work. Speakers
will engage with various different aspects of his philosophy.

Confirmed speakers are as follows:

Professor Antonella Corradini (Catholic University of Milan)
Professor Tim Crane (University of Cambridge)
Professor John Heil (Washington University in St Louis)
Dr Penelope Mackie (University of Nottingham)
Dr Anna Marmodoro (University of Oxford)
Professor Peter Simons (Trinity College Dublin)
Dr Tuomas Tahko (University of Helsinki)
Professor David Robb (Davidson College)
Professor Peter van Inwagen (University of Notre Dame)

The conference will begin at 2.00 pm on Sunday 27th July and conclude at
6.00 pm on Tuesday 29th July. On the Sunday, there will be an opening
lecture followed by several short speeches, a wine reception, a concert and
a three-course dinner. On the Monday and Tuesday, there will be eight
further papers by invited speakers.

We are also keen to include some further papers by current postgraduate
students and recent PhD graduates. If you would like to be considered for
inclusion in the programme, please submit an abstract of no more than 300
words (for a paper that can be presented in 20 minutes) to David Westland
(d.w.westland@durham.ac.uk) by 1st June 2014 at the latest. The only
constraint on content is that the paper should explicitly address some
aspect of Jonathan’s work. We hope to provide bursaries for those whose
abstracts are selected (details to follow).

Jonathan’s work and his friendship meant a great deal to a lot of people,
and we realise that there are many others who would like to have given
papers at this conference. We’re very sorry that we couldn’t invite all of
you to do so. If you would like to come and share your memories of Jonathan
by giving a short speech on the Sunday, please contact Matthew Ratcliffe
(m.j.ratcliffe@durham.ac.uk).

All are very welcome to attend this conference. There is a small
registration fee of £35 (waged) and £20 (student/unwaged). You can register
