1st Annual USA Philosophy Workshop

1st Annual USA Philosophy Workshop: New (and Old) Perspectives on Coherentism

May 11-14 2009

At the Hilton Garden Inn Beachfront

Orange Beach, Alabama

Speakers: William Lycan (Keynote), Jonathan Kvanvig (Keynote), Mylan Engel, Erik Olsson, Ted Poston, William Roche, Bruce Russell, Matthias Steup

Conference Overview:

Recent epistemological work suggests that coherentism can avoid historically prominent problems such as the input, isolation, and truth connection objections.  Moreover, formal work on the nature of coherence suggests new problems and prospects for coherentism.  The purpose of this conference is to reassess the prospects and problems attending epistemic coherentism.

Interested in Participating?  We welcome any philosophers (grads & undergrads too) interested in participating in this workshop.  Please send Ted Poston an email by December 1st, 2008.  I need to know how many hotel rooms to reserve by that date.

Registration: The conference registration fee is $50; payable at the conference.

Travel: The closest airport to the conference site is the Pensacola Airport in Pensacola, FL.  I aim to coordinate transportation to the conference hotel, but in the event that doesn’t work out you can take a taxi to Gulf Shores.

Hotel Information: Rooms are reserved at the Hilton Garden Inn Beachfront.  Make your reservations by April 17, 2009.  To receive the group rate (129.95 King / 139.95 Double/Pool View) mention the University of South Alabama Summer Workshop.  If you have any difficulties with registration please contact Ted Poston via email.

Conference Program: TBA
