Just a quick post to encourage people to submit papers to the SSPP conference, April 5-7th 2007, in Atlanta (deadline Nov. 15th). Everyone knows how good the SPP conference is, but I think folks are less aware of the recent rejuvenation of the Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology. In recent years, the contributed program at the SSPP has been attracting a lot of good papers in the philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, epistemology, metaphysics of science and â€˜naturalisticâ€™ philosophy generally. Since the SSPP has always been an especially open and friendly conference, this has made for philosophically lively meeting. I strongly encourage people to submit a paper, especially since this yearâ€™s Philosophy Program chair, Chase Wrenn, has put together a great invited program:
Keynote: John Searle
Invited Speaker: David Rosenthal
Invited Speaker: Colin McGinn
Symposium on Realization: Gene Witmer, Carl Gillett and Ken Aizawa, Chase Wrenn
Symposium on Normative Naturalistic Epistemology:David Henderson, Charles Wallis, Michael Bishop and J.D. Trout
Symposium on Intentionality: Chris Gauker, Pete Mandik, John Tienson.
Details on the conference are here (see the links for the CFP or the latest newsletter):
