Hume Society is pleased to
announce its thirty-first annual conference, to be held August 2-7, 2004
in Tokyo, Japan, hosted by Keio University. The title of the
Industry, Knowledge and
In "Of Refinement in the
Arts" Hume writes:
industry, knowledge, and humanity, are linked together by an
indissoluble chain, and are found, from experience as well as reason, to
be peculiar to the more polished, and, what are commonly denominated,
the more luxurious ages.
Papers bearing some relation
to the theme will be especially welcome; however, papers on any aspect of
Hume's life and works will be considered.
Papers should be no more
than thirty minutes reading length with self-references deleted for blind
reviewing; the author's name should appear only on a front cover sheet.
Papers may be submitted in French, Spanish, German or English, but must
include an English-language abstract.
Authors are requested to submit
papers and abstracts as e-mail attachments in MS Word or rich text format.
The Hume Society has set
aside up to $2000 for the support of graduate students reading papers at
the annual Hume Society meetings, to be given at the discretion of the
Conference Co-Directors to those whose papers have been accepted through
the normal vetting process.
Submissions must be sent to
by November 1, 2003.
