POSS Roundtable Homepage



We welcome abstracts for individual papers or symposia on any topic in philosophy of the social sciences or in the philosophy of social phenomena, especially those that tackle philosophical issues as they arise in, and are consequential for, practicing social scientists. We will assemble a two and a half day program of workshop-format sessions so that intensive discussion can be the focus of the meeting.

For this meeting the Roundtable is especially interested in papers that relate the philosophy of social science and Ancient Philosophy, which will be the focus of one of the Keynotes and a concurrent conference.


To propose a paper or a symposium, prepare an extended abstract for submission through EasyChair.

Submissions deadline: December 15, 2015


The full conference program can be downloaded here.
