Past, Present and Future

Warwick, UK
26th-28th June 2019

For as long as philosophical questions have been asked, the nature and task of philosophy itself has posed a problem to which various and often conflicting solutions have arisen. Today it seems that the idea and practice of philosophy is as controversial as ever – for philosophers and non-philosophers alike. The questions have however been rephrased: What is the place of philosophy in an increasingly specialised academia? How does society perceive philosophy and how can philosophy itself impact society? Has philosophy progressed, or simply adapted to the political and social world in which it is found? Is a single foundation possible, or must we always ‘begin again’, seeking new philosophical tools in pursuit of the problems we encounter?

This year, the Warwick Conference of Continental Philosophy (WCPC) invites papers of Continental or European philosophy focusing upon the purpose and scope of philosophical discourse and practice. Suggested topics might include, but are not limited to:

 *   The nature and task of philosophy: What is philosophy today? What is the role of the philosopher? Does philosophy or its subdisciplines have set functions? What are the problems that philosophy addresses and why? What characterises continental philosophy? Is philosophy possible (only) within academia?
 *   The identities of philosophy: Philosophy and gender, philosophy and social class, philosophy and language. Who is the philosopher? Who are the female philosophers to be rediscovered in the history of philosophy? Who are those excluded from philosophy? Is philosophy a ‘luxury’? How do non-philosophers think of philosophers and vice-versa? Is there a single language and style of philosophy?
 *   The geography of philosophy: Dialogues and misunderstandings between Western and non-Western traditions. Is there a difference between Western and non-Western conceptions and modes of philosophising? What are the reciprocal influences? What is non-Western philosophy? Is there a defining feature of Western philosophy?
 *   The interplay between philosophy and other disciplines: Philosophy and science, technology, the arts, psychology & psychoanalysis, the social sciences, religion, etc. What are the boundaries and intersections between philosophy and these other disciplines?
 *   The histories of philosophy: Different conceptions and practises of philosophy in Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and Modernity. What are the differences and similarities across epochs and traditions? What can past conceptions tell us?

We are also pleased to announce the following keynote presentations:

The 26th June will open with a roundtable discussion on Foucault, philosophy and problematisation, featuring Stuart Elden (Warwick), Daniele Lorenzini (Saint-Louis - Bruxelles) and Martina Tazzioli (Swansea), alongside other experts on Foucault.

The 27th will then feature a roundtable discussion of crisis in philosophy and other disciplines, chaired by Miguel de Beistegui (Warwick) and in association with the Philosophy in a Time of Crisis project (

On the closing day of the conference, we are also pleased to feature a keynote presentation from Marina Garcés, (Oberta de Catalunya), founding member of collectiveEspai en blanc.

The Warwick Continental Philosophy Conference welcomes the following proposals:

 *   Papers: Each paper will be allotted 25 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion.
 *   Panels: We also invite suggestions for panels consisting of 3-4 papers organised around a common theme (paper abstracts of 250-500 words & panel abstract 250-300 words); the panel as a whole cannot exceed one and a half hours.

Roundtables: We will also consider suggestions for roundtable discussions to discuss a single theme, idea or topic, moderated by a chair (abstract of 250-500 words).

If you wish to submit a proposal in any of the formats above, please send an email to The deadline for submissions is the 22nd March 2019. We hope to make bursaries available following the acquisition of more funding, so please indicate on your application if you would like to be considered.

Varieties of Unity in Early Modern Philosophy
University of Groningen, Netherlands
April 12-13, 2019

The issue of unity is an important topic both in scholastic and mainstream early modern philosophy.  One set of questions centres on the idea that unity was supposed to be an essential feature of substances. But how are the parts of a composite—parts like matter and form—united? And how are composite substances distinguished from mere aggregates? Accidents and modes are also supposed to be united in some sense with their hosts: what accounts for the unity of a substance with its accidents?  A different set of questions arose from the distinction between the material and the immaterial: human souls or minds were regarded as simple or indivisible, but matter as inherently composite and divisible.  This distinction was important for the view that the human soul or mind is immortal – on account of its indivisibility.  How should we understand these differences and how did various philosophers argue for them?  How are mind and body united in a human being?  And can material entities have any sort of real unity, especially on a mechanistic conception?

We propose a two-day conference on these and related questions in scholastic and non-scholastic thinkers in the 16th-17th century on April 12-13, 2019.  One goal of the conference is to develop a deeper understanding of scholastic thought in this period, and its relationship to what we ordinarily think of as early modern thinkers.

Confirmed Speakers: Jeff McDonough (Harvard University); Shane Duarte (University of Notre Dame); Helen Hattab (University of Houston); Calvin Normore (UCLA); Marleen Rozemond (University of Toronto)

Organizers: Marleen Rozemond (University of Toronto), Brian Embry (University of Groningen)

Submission instructions: Please submit blinded abstracts of 1-2 pages to before January 10, 2019.

Durham, April 1-2, 2019

The Durham Centre for Ancient and Medieval Philosophy (  is hosting a two-day workshop on Britain's Early Philosophers and is  seeking abstracts for contributed talks on any aspect of philosophy and  philosophers born in or living in Britain before 1000.

Who were Britain’s earliest philosophers? What were Alcuin of York’s  contributions to philosophy? To what extent can we consider thinkers  such as Hild, Bede, Cuthbert, Gildas, and Cædmon philosophers? How did  philosophy reach Britain? Who was reading it, who was writing it, who  was teaching it, who was learning it? In this seminal exploratory workshop, we will be considering these questions as well as other  questions such as: What counts as philosophy in the early medieval  British period? What are the boundary/ies between philosophy and  theology? Is there a specifically/uniquely early British philosophical tradition? Just who was reading Alfred’s translation of Boethius?
In this two-day workshop, we will have plenary talks given by:
    Dr. Fred Biggs (Connecticut)
    Dr. Barbara Denison (Shippensburg)
    Dr. Helen Foxhall Forbes (Durham) (tbc)
    Dr. Mary Garrison (York) (tbc)

These talks will set the stage by focusing on some of the intellectual  context of early medieval Britain and the contributions of leading  figures in early British intellectual history, including Bede, Alcuin, and Hild.

We would like to supplement these invited talks with around 12  contributed talks from scholars (especially junior scholars) from all  disciplines, so long as they touch on the matter of philosophy and  philosophical writing, teaching, and learning.

Abstracts of no more than 500 words should be sent to Dr. Sara L.  Uckelman,, by January 30, 2019; responses to decisions on abstracts will be communicated by February 15, 2019.
