NEH Summer Institute: X-Phi

Experimental Philosophy is a new movement that uses experiments to address traditional philosophical questions. Although the movement is only a few years old, it has attracted prolific practitioners as well as ardent critics.

This summer, the NEW is sponsoring an Institute on Experimental Philosophy. The Institute will bring in over a dozen distinguished guest faculty, who will present their latest research across a wide range of issues and perspective. The Institute will also provide participants with the opportunity to learn experimental methods that are used in Experimental Philosophy.

The Institute will take place at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, from June 22-July 17, 2009. Eligible participants must have a teaching position at a U.S. college or university. The deadline for application is March 2, 2009. More information about the Institute, as well as application materials, are available here.
