The Society of Adventist Philosophers invites submissions for papers and panels to be presented at its annual symposium.

Theme: Good With(out) God?: Adventism and 19th Century Ethical Philosophy
Date: November 20, 2014
Location: San Diego, CA

Keynote Speaker: C. Stephen Evans (Baylor University)

Seventh-day Adventism established itself in the 19th century in the tumultuous time of the second great religious awakening. The 19th century was also a century rich in philosophical thought.  What are the connections and disconnections between these two great phenomena of the 19th century; between a religious movement turned Protestant denomination in the United States and philosophical thought (so much of it on religion generally, and also on Christianity in particular) in Europe and England?

The Society of Adventist Philosophers calls for papers relating Adventism to the philosophers of the 19th century, focusing on their ethical/religious thought. Such figures include:

  • Kant
  • The German Idealists (Fichte, Schelling, Hegel)
  • Schopenhauer
  • Marx
  • Feuerbach
  • Mill
  • Kierkegaard
  • Nietzsche

Submission Guidelines:

Papers, paper abstracts and panel proposals of up to 300 words should be submitted by June 30, 2014 to adventistphilosophy@gmail.com. Paper length should not exceed 10 pages, double-spaced, or 3000 words.

Notice of acceptance will be sent by July 31, 2014.
