The Center for the Study of Scottish Philosophy (CSSP) is hosting a conference, “The Scottish Tradition: Explaining Its Rise, Understanding Its Legacy,” at Princeton University from March 9-11, 2018.
Paper proposals (maximum 300 words) on any topic relevant to this general theme are invited. They should be sent as an email attachment, with all identifying references in the accompanying email, to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1st 2017. Decisions will be notified by December 15th. Proposals chosen for inclusion should be developed into in papers with a maximum reading time of 30 minutes.
The Center for the Study of Scottish Philosophy’s opening conference took place in Aberdeen in 2004. It moved to Princeton in 2006, and the 2018 conference will be its closing event. Following the conference, the CSSP will merge with the International Association for Scottish Philosophy, to form a new Institute for the Study of Scottish Philosophy. Administratively based at the University of Sioux Falls in South Dakota, and under the direction of Dr James J S Foster, the ISSP will maintain and expand the IASP’s informative website, continue the CSSP’s publication program (Journal of Scottish Philosophy; Library of Scottish Philosophy; Edinburgh Studies in Scottish Philosophy) and in collaboration with other organizations co-sponsor an annual conference at a variety of international venues.
