CALL FOR PAPERS

MAKING SENSE OF EMOTION:
PHILOSOPHIES OF ART, ETHICS AND MIND


The purpose of this one-day conference is to promote philosophical discussion
about the nature of emotion. We invite papers on the relevance of emotion to
aesthetics, ethics and philosophy of mind. Submissions from postgraduates working
in other areas of philosophy, particularly those in which the importance of
emotion has gone unrecognised, are also welcome.

Papers should be no more than twenty minutes long. In the first instance,
proposals of approximately 300 words should be sent to Melenia Arouh
(ma399@soton.ac.uk) or James Cuthbert (djc2@soton.ac.uk). The deadline for
proposals is 22nd December 2001. Final drafts of accepted papers will be required
by 15th January 2002.

The date of the conference is still to be confirmed. A second call for papers,
detailing the date and keynote speaker, will be issued shortly. There will be no
conference registration fee.
