The Ninth NYU Conference on Issues in Modern Philosophy
New York University, Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, Room 914

Registration is available here.
The New York University
Department of Philosophy will host the ninth in its series of annual
conferences on issues in the history of modern philosophy on November 9
and 10, 2012. 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.
