Call for papers:
3rd Workshop on Philosophy, Logic and Analytical Metaphysics
Aug 21-23, 2017
Natal/RN, Brazil
​ The third edition of the FILOMENA Workshop (FIlosofia, LOgica e
MEtafísica aNAlítica), promoted by the Group for 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, a branch of Philosophy on its own, 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. 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

The workshop will allow 30 minutes for each contributed talk, divided into
20 minutes for exposition followed by 10 minutes of discussion. The
abstracts may be written in English or Portuguese. Abstracts should have at
most 500 words and should include relevant information about the author
(name, e-mail address, and scientific affiliation). Please submit an
editable file (such as .doc, .odt, .tex) along with a .pdf file of your
abstract. A model of the abstract in .tex is is available at

This year it is also possible to submit a proposal for a tutorial (two

be presented, along with relevant bibliography. The proposal may be written
in English or Portuguese, should have at most 1000 words and include
relevant information about the author (name, e-mail address, and scientific
affiliation). Please submit an editable file (such as .doc, .odt, .tex)
along with a .pdf file.
