Conference Announcement

Metaphysics of Science Conference, August 3-5, 2010, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, South Korea

The Korean Society for Analytic Philosophy and Metaphysics Research Group at Kyung Hee University (Seoul, Korea) will jointly host an international conference on the metaphysics of science from Tuesday 3rd August to Thursday 5th August, 2010. The conference venue will be the Seoul campus of Kyung Hee University, Seoul, Korea. The conference aims to identify and explore fundamental metaphysical issues in connection with the recent development of sciences. Another important goal of this conference is to give a valuable opportunity for analytic philosophers around the world (especially in the East-Asia region) to come together and exchange their views, interests, and ideas. This is hoped to promote future interactions among analytic philosophers in the East-Asia region, and possibly contribute to the formation of international research teams for collaborations.

Keynote speakers
Alexander Bird (Bristol University, UK), Huw Price (University of Sydney, Australia ), Helen Beebee (University of Birmingham, UK)
