CFA: Real Possibilities, Indeterminism and Free Will

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

The conference “Real Possibilities, Indeterminism and Free Will” will take place at the University of
Konstanz, Germany on 18-21 March 2015.

The conference will mark the final phases of two ongoing projects at the University of Konstanz:

“What is really possible? Philosophical explorations in branching-history based real modality”
https://www.possibilities.uni-konstanz.de/
funded by a VIDI grant of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO),

and

“Indeterminism Ltd. An intervention on the free will debate”
https://www.indeterminism.uni-konstanz.de/
funded by a Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC).

The first project centers on formal and metaphysical aspects of real possibilities for the future. The
second project centers on the role that the open future can play for understanding agency in our
indeterministic world. The goal of this conference is to provide a forum for discussing those two lines
of research and their intersection.
