CALL FOR PAPERS [c/o Mark Calano. I made this shorter for readingandphilosophy]
Philosophical Association of the Philippines (PAP), Inc.
“Philosophy, Spirituality, and Secularity”
San Beda College, October 25, 2013 (Friday)
This year’s midyear conference aims to engage philosophers from both the continental and the analytic traditions on the theme of philosophy, spirituality, and secularity.
Taking its cue from recent developments in philosophy, the midyear conference aims to focus on the following questions:
1. What is the relationship between philosophy and spirituality?
2. What becomes of this relationship in the advent of secularity?
3. What is the conception of spirituality that operates within secularist regimes?
The keynote speaker for the midyear is Rev. Fr. Ranhilio Calangan Aquino, Ph.D., J.D., with a paper on “Faith in a Secular World.”
The PAP midyear conference will be held in San Beda College on Friday, October 25, 2013.
Since 2013 is also a commemorative year for philosophers, such as Paul Ricoeur, Albert Camus, and Søren Kierkegaard, a special panel for each philosopher is also provided for scholars who wish to share their papers/research.
We welcome paper abstract submissions from academics, graduate students, and independent scholars on the theme “Philosophy, Spirituality, and Secularity” and also commemorative papers on Ricouer, Camus, and Kierkegaard. Please send a 300-word abstract, a clear and complete outline of the argument of your paper, and a short bionote to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications (abstracts, outline, and bionote) is on September 06, 2013 (Friday). A letter of acceptance will reach successful applicants by September 09, 2013. Please note that due to the limited structure of the conference sessions, we will be selecting only eighteen (18) papers for presentation.
