7 - 8 May 2019, Workshop on the History of Arabic Logic, St Andrews, Scotland

Date: 7 - 8 May 2019
Location: St Andrews, Scotland
Deadline: Friday 1 February 2019

Since the last century, scholars have acknowledged the original and relevant contribution of medieval Arabic philosophers and thinkers to the development of medieval Western logic and, more generally, to the history of logic. The Workshop on History of Arabic Logic has two main aims: to make better known the richness and importance of Arabic logic, that is, logic developed and studied in Arabic-speaking lands from the 8th to the 15th centuries CE; and to provide a forum for interaction and discussion by scholars of Arabic logic.

Invited Speakers: Saloua Chatti (Tunis), Khaled El-Rouayheb (Harvard), Wilfrid Hodges (British Academy) and Riccardo Strobino (Tufts).

Call for Papers: We invite contributions focusing both on the logic developed and studied in Arabic-speaking lands from the 8th to the 15th centuries CE and on its influence on Medieval Western logic. Accepted presentations will be 1 hour in length including time for questions.

To submit your contribution for consideration, please send an abstract (around 500 words) along with a short CV (max. 1 page) to the organisers Prof. Stephen Read and Dr Barbara Bartocci (<mailto:>). The deadline for submission of abstracts is February 1, 2019. Notification concerning the acceptance of abstracts will be provided to the corresponding authors by February 22, 2019. Presenters should arrange their own conference travel and accommodation.

We warmly encourage submissions and/or attendance by members of groups underrepresented in academic philosophy.
