The second edition of the FILOMENA Workshop (FIlosofia,LOgica e MEtafísica
aNAlítica), promoted by the Group on Logic and Formal Philosophy from the
UFRN, has the purpose of gathering logicians working at the intersection of
Logic and Metaphysics, through the application of formal methods in
Philosophy. Logic, while initially considered as a branch of Philosophy,
has outgrown its original purposes and found connections with other areas
of Philosophy, such as Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mathematics,
Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Mind. Since its modern development,
Logic has proved to be a powerful tool for analyzing different
philosophical theories, as well as their foundations and implications;
moreover, the birth and development of non-classical logics has expanded
its domain of application much beyond the dreams of its progenitors.

Topics of interest for our Workshop include, but are not limited to:

Modal metaphysics

Reference and descriptions

Philosophical topics in non-classical logics


Logical consequence

Logical pluralism x logical monism

Logic and metaphysical neutrality


The first edition of FILOMENA, held at UFRN in September 2014, counted with
15 contributed talks and a round-table on “The philosophy of
contradictions”, with the following participants: Hitoshi Omori (CUNY),
Peter Verdée (KU-Leuven), Marcos Silva (UFC) Chair: João Marcos (UFRN).

This year our workshop will follow the same structure of the previous one.
Each contributed talk is to have the duration of 25 minutes, divided into
20 minutes for exposition followed by 5 minutes of discussion. The
abstracts may be written in English or Portuguese, but not both.


Abstracts should have a minimum of 500 words and a maximum of 1000 words,
and should be submitted in a PDF file including relevant information about
the authors (name, e-mail address, and scientific affiliation).
Submissions and inquiries must be sent to the email
filomena2015info-AT-gmail.com. Accepted contributions will be invited for
publication in a special edition of Revista Saberes


Submission: April 26 (extended)

Notification: May 10
