The ISN is having its first Summer Institute (June 11th) and Conference (June 15th).
ISN Summer Conference 2007:“The Nature of Nature”
At the end of the four days of study at the Summer Institute, the ISN will hold a small academic conference called “The Nature of Nature” for the benefit of the students and interested scholars.
What: A one and one-half day academic conference with one or two keynote addresses, and the presentation of 10-15 academic papers. Papers are encouraged on topics ranging from anti-reductionism/holism in science to self-organization, systems theory, and complexity, to papers in natural philosophy in the neo-Aristotelian or phenomenological traditions. See the ISN “articles, essays, and books” page to get a sense of the range or relevant topics.
Who: The invited keynote speaker (not confirmed) is Dr. Leon Kass. Scholars interested in giving papers are welcome to submit their proposals by May 11th; those whose papers are selected will have their travel expenses reimbursed, and may receive a small stipend (to be determined). Any interested scholar may attend. Also, we hope and expect the students from the preceding Summer Institute will remain to participate, since this conference is for their benefit as well.
Thanks to Mark Shea.
