The Hume Society is pleased to issue in collaboration with the British Society for the History of Philosophy a CALL FOR PAPERS for the Twenty-third Hume Society Conference to be held at the University of Nottingham July 15-19, 1996.  Papers may be on any aspect of Hume's writings, but since 1996 is the bi-centenary of Thomas Reid's death, papers on aspects of his writings will be welcome too.  The conference directors will especially welcome papers on justice and related themes in view of Nottingham's connection with a well known knave and on any other theme on which Hume and Reid were in debate. 

 

Papers should be no more than thirty minutes reading length;  the author's name should appear only on a front cover sheet to facilitate blind reviewing.  Papers may be in English,  French or German,  but  an abstract in English is required for all papers.  Four copies of each paper and its abstract should be submitted.

 

Submissions must be postmarked by November 1, 1995.
