ALSP 2006 Call for Papers

  The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point, however, is to change it.
Karl Marx, "Theses on Feuerbach"

Policy-makers today often echo Marx's scepticism about the practicality of philosophical analysis. The abstract values, principles and normative ideals that characterize contemporary philosophical debates about social justice often appear of little immediate, practical relevance to real world policy dilemmas. Reflecting these concerns, the 2006 conference of the Association of Social and Legal Philosophy (ALSP) will be organised around the theme of "Social Justice in Practice".

ALSP 2006 invites panels and papers across the disciplines of philosophy, politics, law and social policy that explicitly discuss the complex relation between philosophical and practical analysis in relation to concerns of domestic and international social justice. We also welcome papers that discuss practical applications to particular questions of social justice in contemporary society. The conference is open to all aspects of the social justice debate, but preference will be given to contributions that explicitly address the connections between philosophy and practice.

Paper/Panel Submissons:
Please send title & abstract of about 300 words to by 1st February 2006. ALSP 2006 welcomes panel proposals of up to 3 papers.
