Hume Society

Call for Papers







July 20 - 24, 1998


Conference Co-Directors:

Jane McIntyre, (Cleveland State University, USA)

Peter Millican, (University of Leeds, England)

Tony Pitson, (University of Stirling, Scotland)



The Hume Society is pleased to announce a call for papers for its twenty-fifth anniversary conference, to be held in Stirling, Scotland, July 20 ‑ 24, 1998.  Since this will also be the 250th anniversary of the initial publication of Hume's first Enquiry, papers directly concerned with topics from this work and with the development of Hume's philosophy after the Treatise, will be especially welcome. However, papers on any aspect of Hume's life and works will be considered.


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. Authors are requested to submit papers and abstracts in triplicate.


The Hume Society has set aside up to $1000 for the support of graduate students reading papers at the annual Hume Society meetings, to be given at the discretion of the Conference Co-Directors to those whose papers have been accepted through the normal vetting process.


Submissions must be postmarked by November 1, 1997.
