The Theoretical Philosophy Workshop provides a place for students, faculty and invited speakers to present and develop their philosophical projects in a collegial setting. While Theoretical Philosophy contrasts with Practical Philosophy, TPW is otherwise non-exclusive. As such, the workshop provides a forum for work and discussion in any area of theoretical philosophy: epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, philosophy of language, philosophy of mathematics, logic, philosophy of philosophy (metaphilosophy), and so on. While TPW’s orientation is primarily toward contemporary philosophy, we encourage workshop papers that are historical in focus and we do not exclude philosophical work from consideration on the basis of discipline, doctrine or tradition. In particular, though we aim to respect and celebrate Chicago’s rich history of pragmatist, analytic and logical approaches to theoretical philosophy, we welcome scholarship that transcends the Analytic/Continental divide.
