Call for Papers
The Society for Philosophy of Time (SPoT) is organizing a satellite workshop to the German Society for Analytic Philosophy (GAP) conference in Cologne. „Change and Change-Makers: New Perspectives on the Problem of Change“ will be held on the 21th and 22th September 2018 at the University of Cologne.
The topic of this workshop is the intersection of dispositions and persistence. Contemporary accounts of persistence focus on avoiding the looming contradiction in the context of Leibniz’ Law of the indescernibility of identicals, while the question of how change is brought about is neglected. We aim at enriching the debate by also considering the „change-makers“.
We welcome contributions of philosophers working on time or dispositions/powers, who are interested in the respectively other area. We have up to six one-hour slots for presentations. Each talk should be 40 minutes long, leaving 20 minutes for discussion. If you want to present your work, please send an abstract of up to 500 words to email@example.com. The deadline for submission is the 15.01.2018. We will inform you about the acceptance by the end of January 2018.
Registration All participants are welcome, but please send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are coming.
