The philosophers in the M.A. Philosophy Program at Franciscan University propose to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the death of Leibniz with a conference that explores the bearing of Leibniz on issues of philosophy that are being debated today. We want Leibniz to come alive as a philosopher and theologian who speaks to our philosophical and theological concerns.
Those interested in presenting a 20 minute paper on any aspect of Leibniz's relevance to the philosophical issues of our day should submit a 400 word abstract by February 20, 2016, to Mr. Josh Merlo at firstname.lastname@example.org. Graduate students are welcome to submit. Every one who submits an abstract will receive a decision from us within ten days of the submission.
After the conference we will produce an issue of our philosophy journal Questiones Disputatae containing papers from the conference.
