16-18 June 2011, "Another world is possible": conference on David Lewis, Urbino, Italy

Date: 16-18 June 2011
Location: Urbino, Italy
Deadline: 1 March 2011

The impact of David Lewis on contemporary philosophy is still tangible, ten years after his premature departure. The conference intends to discuss Lewis' long-lasting contribution in the fields of logic and metaphysics, with particular focus on the nature of modality, his views on possible worlds, counterfactuals, causation, and convention. We also wish to provide a setting for young philosophers and logicians to present topics related to Lewis' philosophy and discuss the state of art of his legacy in the contemporary philosophical debate.

The Organizing Committee invites all scholars working in Lewisian philosophy to submit an abstract. Submissions must be sent by email attachment to the Organising Committee by March 1, 2011.
