CfP book "Applications of Formal Philosophy;"

Deadline: 31 December 2014

We welcome full paper submissions for a book titled: "Applications of Formal Philosophy: The Road Less Travelled" to be published with Springer, edited by Rafal Urbaniak and Gillman Payette.

Scope:
Logicians have devoted considerable effort to applying formal methods to what are now considered core disciplines of analytic philosophy: philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of language and metaphysics. Researchers in these fields have been accused of sharpening their knives without actually cutting anything of interest to those outside of philosophy. The focus of formal methods is changing and our intent is to further counter the impression of idleness with respect to philosophy at large. The focus of the volume is on those applications of formal methods in philosophy which might be of interest to people working on philosophical questions of more direct relevance to human life.

The submission deadline is December 31, 2014. Please make sure that the content of the paper fits the scope of the volume. For more information, see http://entiaetnomina.blogspot.nl/2014/09/
