About the topic
For this year’s OZSW Graduate Conference we have invited the new generation of researchers, both PhD’s and Research Master students, to present their current work. Through their presentations we hope to get a glimpse of refreshing new ways of approaching old questions, or perhaps see classic ideas used to tackle new problems.
The conference will feature 20-minute presentations, connected to the field of theoretical philosophy in either its analytic or its continental tradition (philosophy of mind, language and science, logic, metaphysics and epistemology, aesthetics). Some PhD’s and ReMa’s who are still in the early phases of their research, will present a poster in one of the dedicated poster sessions.
