cfp: CPP at APA Central ’09

Dear CPP members,

I am planning for the Central APA meeting. If you would like to present a paper at this meeting, please send me a 250 word abstract via email by August 30th, 2008.

In 2009, the APA Central Division is moving its annual meeting time to February. This will require moving forward the dates by which I need various information about group sessions. The 2009 meeting will be at the Palmer House Hilton hotel, Chicago, Illinois, Wednesday, February 18 to Saturday, February 21, 2009).

Sincerely,
Danielle

Call for Presentations

Concerned Philosophers for Peace Symposium at Pacific APA
San Francisco April 3-8
Ethics of Self-Defense

The realization that virtually every adversary claims to act in self-defense raises numerous possibilities for philosophical analysis. These possibilities include the following problematics:

What is the meaning of self-defense in an era of unprecedented lethal weapony, ambigous threats, and non-state actors?

What is permissible: What if any limits should be imposed on self-defense?

How can self-defense be justified? Is the right of self-defense simply intuitively obvious? Should it be scaffolded upon Just War Theory? Is it dervied from natural law? Or should self-defense be seen as the inevitable outcome of realpolitk?

Please e-mail proposed presentations to Ron Hirschbein [Rhirschbein@csuchico.edu] by Nov. 1.
