The Hume Society is pleased to announce a call for papers for the Twenty‑fourth Hume Society Conference,  to be held in Monterey,  California,  July 29 - August 2, 1997.  Submitted papers may be on any aspect of Hume's writings,  although the conference directors particularly encourage submissions on the following themes:


                                               Hume and the Sciences

                                                Hume and Moral Rationalism

                                                Nature and Convention


Plans for the conference include sessions featuring recent work by Hume scholars from Japan,  and the conference directors encourage submissions from Hume scholars throughout the Pacific Rim.


Papers should be no more than thirty minutes reading length with self‑references deleted for blind reviewing; the author's name should appear only on a front cover sheet.  Papers may be in English,  French or German,  but an abstract in English is required for all papers.  Submit papers and abstracts in triplicate.


Submissions must be postmarked by November 1, 1996.
