CALL FOR PAPERS
Aspects of Self and Agency
4th International Philosophy Graduate Conference 
March 30-31, 2012
Central European University, Budapest

The 4th International Philosophy Graduate Conference at the Central European
University concerns two rich topics in the philosophy of mind and moral
philosophy: the self and agency.

Keynote speaker: Lucy O'Brien (UCL), second keynote to be confirmed.

The topic includes self-awareness, embodiment, first-person authority, various
aspects of agency, such as the connection between agency and reasons (and
practical rationality), as well as ontological problems about the self/agency and
historical takes on any of these subjects.

We welcome papers that discuss linguistic self-reference, self-awareness, selfconsciousness,
embodiment, first-person authority, self-attribution of agency as
well ontological problems about the self. We also welcome papers about various
aspects of agency, such as the connection between agency and reasons (and
practical rationality), the authorship account of actions, agency and autonomy,
implications of theories of personal identity and moral philosophy, normative
ethics and applied ethics. In addition, we welcome papers about historical takes on
any of these topics.

Submission deadline: January 20, 2012.
