CFP: "Is There a Marxian Philosophy?" Fifth Annual Conference, Marx and Philosophy Society, London, May 24, 2008.
Keynote speaker: Andrew Feenberg (Simon Fraser University) Is there a distinctive Marxian approach to areas of philosophy such as metaphysics, philosophy of mind, ethics or aesthetics? If so, what does it consist in? Or does a Marxian 'approach to philosophy' amount only to explaining philosophical ideas as means of class struggle or as effects of social relations of production? If so, can such an approach avoid making philosophical presuppositions of its own? We invite papers on any of these questions, in relation to Marx's own work or to others in the Marxist tradition. A panel for postgraduate paper givers will also be organised. Please submit abstracts of up to 300 words by 13 February 2008 at thelatest to Andrew Chitty at email@example.com.
