The submission deadline is December 31, 2014. Please include your contact details in the submission email.

Please make sure that the content of the paper fits the following description of the scope of the volume:

Logicians have devoted considerable effort to applying formal methods to what are now considered core disciplines of analytic philosophy: philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of language and  metaphysics. Researchers in these fields have been accused of sharpening their knives without actually cutting anything of interest to those outside of philosophy. The focus of formal methods is changing and our intent is to further counter the impression of idleness with respect to philosophy at large. The focus of the volume is on those applications of formal methods in philosophy which might be of interest to people working on philosophical questions of more direct relevance to human life.

Best regards,
