Undergraduate Philosophy Conference:

The Mind/Body Problem

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Frances Egan

March 12 & 13, 2010

Submission deadline: February 10, 2010

The mind/body problem can be summarized as the problem of how physical things like brains are related to sensations, concepts, intentions, desires, memories, and other psychologically characterized phenomena. The School of Thought is encouraging undergraduate students to submit essays written on any aspect of the mind/body problem. Papers in any other area of philosophy will also be considered.

Papers should not exceed 3000 words in length. Please do not include any personal identifiers immediately before or after your paper. Name, affiliation, and contact information should be included on a separate page at the end of the document (i.e. well below the body of your essay). Please include a 150 word maximum abstract of your paper. The authors of selected papers will receive $100.00 to present their work at the conference. Frances Egan will be presenting in the afternoon of the 12th, and student papers will be presented throughout the 13th.

Submissions are to be sent to in Word, RTF, PDF or Plain Text format.

Papers must be received by February 10, 2010.
