----- Original Message ----- From: "Andrew Chitty" <email@example.com> Subject: Marx and Philosophy Society: call for papers Call for papers Marx and Philosophy Society Annual Conference Saturday 19 May 2007, Institute of Education, University of London The Justification of Socialism Confirmed speakers: Alex Callinicos (Kings College London) Raj Sehgal (Roehampton Institute) Is socialism to be justified on the grounds that it is needed for freedom, for happiness, for justice, for the unfettered development of human productivity, for us to properly realise our humanity, in order to avoid war or ecological catastrophe, or by virtue of an immanent critique of capitalism? Does a justification of socialism have to depend on a certain model of human nature? Or is the very idea of 'justifying' socialism some kind of philosophical mistake? We invite papers on any of these topics, whether or not related to Marx's own views. Papers should be suitable for a 25 minute presentation, followed by 25 minutes of discussion. A panel for postgraduate paper givers may be organised. Please submit abstracts of up to 300 words by 10th February 2007 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
