2010 Modern Conference
2010 Conference on Issues in Modern Philosophy
“The Metaphysics of Modality”
Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South
New York University, November 12–13, 2010
Registration is available here.
The New York University Department of Philosophy will host the seventh in its series of conferences on issues in the history of modern philosophy on November 12 and 13, 2010. Each conference in the series examines the development of a central philosophical problem from early modern philosophy to the present, exploring the evolution of formulations of the problem and of approaches to resolving it. By examining the work of philosophers of the past both in historical context and in relation to contemporary philosophical thinking, the conferences allow philosophy’s past and present to illuminate one another.
