A few months back, my friends Chris Haufe, Zanja, and I submitted a proposal to the Pacific APA for a kick-ass mini-conference on the troubled, on-again-off-again, relationship between metaphysics and philosophy of science. That wasn't its official title, but that's what it was going to be. . . . We were turned down. But out of the ashes an even more kick-ass conference has emerged with funding from the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, University of Toronto and the Fishbein Center for the History of Science and Medicine, University of Chicago. Clear your calendars from May 13th-15th if you're interested in Metaphysics & the Philosophy of Science and book a flight to Toronto!
Here's the Call for Papers.
