The Mississippi Philosophical Association (MPA) is soliciting abstracts for presentations at its annual meeting, to be held October 7-8, (Friday-Saturday), on the Mississippi State University campus in Starkville, MS.   


We seek participants who will illuminate the booming enterprise known as “Experimental Philosophy”, either by providing and/or interpreting results from within this enterprise, challenging the foundations or practice of this enterprise, or noting its connections to and/or limitations with regard to philosophical naturalism or other more traditional forms of philosophical inquiry.


While the MPA is a regional organization, we seek broad participation in this conference. Philosophers from all institutions and locations are encouraged to submit abstracts.

Submissions should include a title page with the title of the presentation, author’s name, institutional affiliation, email address, and postal address. A 500 word abstract should be prepared for blind review and sent as a second file (.doc or pdf only). Email all submissions or questions to J. Robert Thompson (jrt260@msstate.edu).


SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY AUGUST 25th.

Authors will be notified about submissions by September 1.
