The Chilean Society for Analytic Philosophy will hold an International Colloquium on October 8th, 9th and 10th , 2008. This Colloquium will be our second international event since we successfully launched our series of conferences last year.

The Chilean Society for Analytic Philosophy invites all the national and international academics and postgraduate students interested in taking part of this event to submit an abstract of the paper they would like to read and discuss. The submission deadline is August 22, 2008. The participants will have the option of presenting either a full paper (40 min. + 20 min. of open discussion) or a
“communication” (20 min. + 10 min. of open discussion). The official languages of the colloquium will be Spanish and English. The abstract must contain no more than 500 words in any *.doc format and must be written in one of the official languages. Please specify your name, affiliation and whether you want to participate with a full paper or with a communication. The abstract should be sent to Dr. Jose Tomas Alvarado to the following email address:


Successful candidates will be contacted by email and their names will appear in the society’s official web site. The S.C.F.A (Chilean Society for Analytic Philosophy) not only attempts to promote research in those areas traditionally associated with Analytic Philosophy (Epistemology, Philosophy of Mind, Logic, Philosophy of Languaje, Ethics, Philosophy of Science, etc.), but also aims to generate dialog with other scientific disciplines that convey important philosophical consequences such as cognitive science, biology or psychology.

The II International Colloquium will be held at the Sala Ercilla of the Biblioteca Nacional de Chile in Santiago, Chile. The Library is located in Avenida Libertador Bernardo O’Higgins 651, Santiago, Chile. The nearest underground station is Metro Santa Lucía. More information will be posted soon in our website:


Yours Faithfully,
