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
1st Annual Symposium at Scarborough
undergraduate philosophy conference hosted by the Philosophy
Club at the University of Toronto at Scarborough
Speaker: Diana Raffman, University of Toronto
Conference Location: University of Toronto at Scarborough (UTSC)
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.
submit papers in pdf or rtf format to email@example.com.
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.
hope to be able to help defray travel expenses for presenters
from outside the Greater Toronto Area.
deadline: February 5.
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.
Page in Hobbes Reading (01.08.08)
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:
Leviathan, pp. 96-7 [non-captured PDF, 46 kb.]
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).
