CEU Philosophy Graduate Conference
The 2nd Philosophy Graduate Conference at CEU
March 29-30, 2008, Central European University, Budapest
Galen Strawson Keynote speaker: Galen Strawson
(University of Reading/CUNY)

The conference aims to bring together graduate students from Central-East Europe and the rest of the world who share an interest in analytic philosophy and analytically oriented history of philosophy. We are delighted to welcome professor Galen Strawson from the University of Reading and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, who will give the keynote address.

The conference is supported by a CEU Travel Fund grant.

Upon the authors' agreement, the papers presented at the conference will be published in the Department's graduate students' philosophy journal, Percipi.

The conference is now over; we'll add some pictures soon.

I want to thank professor Galen Strawson and all the speakers for the rewarding intellectual experience, and all the faculty and my colleagues at CEU that took part in the discussions. Special thanks to George and Andrei, who helped a lot with all the details that nobody notices until they're missing. Most of all, I want to thank Kati Farkas. While I provided the persistence conditions for the project for the past 5 months, she contributed all the causal powers that explain the success of the whole event. Thank you all, and see you again in Budapest! ---Stefan

The final program of the conference is now online, and the travel information has been updated.

Suggested get-together for Friday evening: Szimpla Kert, from around 8 o’clock. It’s a big smoky bar but hopefully it won’t be too difficult to pick out a group of English speaking philosophy student types. The address is VII. district, 14 Kazinczy street (it is marked on the map here). There are various places called ‘Szimpla’: a shop, and a bar too, but this is the “Kert”, it’s the one on Kazinczy str.
