2012 Southwest Seminar in Continental Philosophy
Continental Philosophy in the Great Basin
The Third Annual Southwest
Seminar in Continental Philosophy
June 7-9, 2012
Brigham Young University
The third annual Southwest Seminar in Continental Philosophy will be held on June 7-9, 2012. An opening session will be held Thursday night, followed by sessions all day Friday and Saturday.
There will be two keynote speakers: The first keynote speaker, David W. Smith of UC Irvine, will be addressing the topic of “Ttruth in Edmund Husserl and Alfred Tarski.” The second keynote speaker, Shannon M. Mussett, professor of philosophy at Utah Valley University, will be addressing the topic of “Mythic Origins in Retreat: Freud, Nietzsche, and Beauvoir.”
The meetings will be held at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and is jointly sponsored by the philosophy department of Brigham Young University and the Richard L. Evans Chair of Religious Understanding at Brigham Young University. In the same spirit of previous gatherings of SWSCP (at the University of New Mexico in 2010, at the University of Denver in 2011), we hope to continue building a regional community of participants.
Those who do not present papers but who still wish to attend could have the opportunity to be involved as Session Chairs.
