CFP: Late Notice For Northwest Philosophy Conference


I noticed the CFP below earlier in August, via H-Ideas, but was then distracted with numerous other activities. Anyway, the open-endedness of the call as well as Portland location might interest some of you. Please note that proposals are due in three days, on Sept. 3.





Lewis & Clark College, Portland, Oregon, October 5-6, 2007
