Philosophy and the Martial Arts

Philosophy and the Martial Arts
A conference to be held at the University of Melbourne
July 12/13, 20010

In 2010, the Department of Philosophy, University of Melbourne, will host a
second 'Martial Arts and Philosophy' conference. Date: July 12/13, following
the 2010 AAP conference in Sydney. If this may interest you, please mark
the dates in your diary so that you can keep them free. Further details
will be determined in due course.

Now that the manuscript for the Open Court volume has been delivered to the
publishers, we're planning an anthology of scholarly papers on martial arts
and philosophy. The 2010 conference will feed into this. You don't have to
deliver a paper at the conference to submit to the collection, but it will
be a good chance to sharpen ideas with like-minded peers.

At this point, we're asking for expressions of interest, briefly outlining
your possible conference paper. These can be emailed to Graham Priest
( and Damon Young ( If you
have any questions, feel free to drop us a line.

And do distribute this announcement to anyone who might be interested.
