Forthcoming Volume on Internalism and Externalism in Semantics and Epistemology

At Jon’s prompting — but of course I don’t need prompting to self-promote — I want to announce a forthcoming volume, tentatively entitled INTERNALISM AND EXTERNALISM IN SEMANTICS AND EPISTEMOLOGY, to be published by Oxford U Press (probably some time in 2006). It is designed to address whether there are any interesting connections between the two I/E debates. (I bring this up in conjunction with my shameless attempt to pitch the I/E debate in Epistemology as one of the three most important “developments” in epistemology in the past twenty-five years, as per Jon’s posting).

Contributions for the volume are expected from Jessica Brown, Tony Brueckner, Richard Fumerton, Sandy Goldberg, Terry Horgan (with David Henderson), Joseph Owens, Duncan Pritchard, Jim Pryor, Sarah Sawyer, David Sosa, Fritz Warfield, Crispin Wright, and possibly Robert Audi.

In conjunction with the volume, there will be a two-day conference at the University of Kentucky at which all of the contributors will present drafts of their contributions, for commentary. The conference will take place April 15th-17th, 2005, in Lexington, KY. Anyone interested in attending should let me know ASAP, at scgold@uky.edu, since April is horse racing season in Lexington so the hotel will be sold out soon (believe it or not).

As soon as I have a web site for the conference I will list on under the other conferences on this blog.
