Conference for Latin American Hume Scholars

We are pleased to share a new initiative to bring together scholars from Latin America interested in Hume:

An international meeting will bring together for the first time 23 researchers from all over Latin America with the aim of strengthening the academic work on the philosophy of David Hume in our continent. We will discuss the different aspects of Hume’s thought: religion, politics, ethics, philosophical writing, space and time, causation, among others.

The meeting will be held virtually every Tuesday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (Argentina time, GMT -3) from May 3 to June 7, 2022. Official languages of the event will be Spanish and Portuguese.

Organizing committee and coordination: Mauricio Zuluaga (Colombia), Jerónimo Narváez Cano (Colombia) and Sofía Calvente (Argentina). More information, including the program, can be found here.
