Midterm Conference Truth and Persuasion – CFP

“Truth and Persuasion”, Sassari (call for papers open)

September 24-26, 2015, Sassari (Italy)

The S.I.F.A. (Italian Society for Analytic Philosophy) is pleased to
announce its Midterm Conference on Truth and Persuasion.

General Aim
The conference aims to advance our understanding of the relationships
between the concepts of truth and persuasion.
While the absolute conception of truth has been widely criticised, the
philosophical implications of this critique are far from clear. There is a
general agreement that we need a conception of truth sensitive to contexts
and to historically situated subjects. Some have concluded that truth is
local and rational argumentation culturally bounded. Others have suggested
that sound argumentations are culturally relative. What is the role of truth
and rational argumentation in the exchange among different cultures? Are
conversations among cultures based on persuasion, rather than truth? The
Conference aims to refocus the discussion on the intricacies and
complexities of the relation between truth and persuasion, a theme that has
been largely neglected in the last decades.

The Keynote speakers will include:
Simon Blackburn
Marian David
Wolfgang Huemer
Frans van Eemeren

The conference will be held in Sassari, North Sardinia, September 24th –
26th, 2015.
The Conference languages will be English and Italian (English preferred).

Call for papers
The submission period for papers is now open. Abstracts are expected to
highlight the relations between truth and persuasion, as well as these
concepts in isolation, from the many perspective they can be tackled
(epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, politics, aesthetics, philosophy of
language, philosophy of science, etc.).
Abstracts will be selected on the basis of quality and philosophical
