U of T Undergraduate Conference (01.17.08)

In class today, I mentioned and upcoming conference that might be of interest to undergraduate students in the course. I haven't been able to find a web link, here's the message text I received this morning:

Call for Papers

March 15, 2008

The 1st Annual Symposium at Scarborough

An undergraduate philosophy conference hosted by the Philosophy Club at the University of Toronto at Scarborough

Keynote Speaker: Diana Raffman, University of Toronto
Conference Location: University of Toronto at Scarborough (UTSC)

The Philosophy Club at the University of Toronto Scarborough invites submission of high quality papers in any area of philosophy for the inaugural Symposium at Scarborough, an undergraduate philosophy conference. Papers should be approximately 2000-3000 words, suitable for presentation in 20 minutes, and accessible to philosophy students at the undergraduate level. Each paper will be commented on by a UTSC undergraduate, and there will be an opportunity for general discussion.

Please submit papers in pdf or rtf format to Papers should be prepared for blind review, with no identifying information in the paper itself. A cover sheet, attached as a separate file, should contain author name, title, address, school affiliation, email, phone number, word count, and abstract of approximately 125 words.

We hope to be able to help defray travel expenses for presenters from outside the Greater Toronto Area.

Submissions deadline: February 5.

If any students in the course thinking of submitting, I'd be happy to offer advice. I can also offer advice about to secure aditional funds from the U of S College of Arts and Science.


Mangled Page in Hobbes Reading (01.08.08)

It was brought to my attention part of pages 86 and 87 were cut off in the photocopies of the selection from Hobbes that I handed out last class. Here are those pages in complete form:

Hobbes, Leviathan, pp. 96-7 [non-captured PDF, 46 kb.]

Syllabus (01.03.08)

Syllabi for both versions of the course and the draft reading schedule are now available for download on the Handouts and Assignments page. I'll start putting up the downloadable texts as soon as possible (probably this weekend).
