Programme Details with Call for Research Papers:
It is our great pleasure to inform all of you that we are organizing
an international conference on the philosophy of legendary analytic
philosopher, Hilary Putnam, an iconic figure of our contemporary
philosophy world. He is often called the ‘Renaissance Man of
Philosophy’ in the sense that he could make some outstanding original
theories in the emerging fields of philosophy of mind, philosophy of
language, metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, philosophy of logic,
mathematics and computer science, which are notably a remarkable
intellectual journey that created a history in itself. Very recently
(on June) in 2015, the Library of Living Philosophers Series published
an esteemed honorary volume entitled ‘The Philosophy of Hilary Putnam’
to honor his laudable and monumental contribution to philosophy.
It would be an immensely esteemed for the department of IIT Bombay to
contribute homage to the living giant by felicitating him through an
international conference. We are very pleased to inform that some
distinguished scholars on his work have agreed to be a part of our
conference. Our distinguished speakers are already selected.
But the competent Research Scholars working on the philosophy of
Hilary Putnam are cordially welcome. Those research scholars who would
like to be a part of our conference should submit their full paper
along with abstract within 15th August for peer review. The abstract
would be within 300 words and the paper must be within 2000 words.
Please send your paper in MS word version to the e-mail addresses of
the organizers positively within 15th August, 2015. We will correspond
with the selected paper presenters within the end of August.
