2nd CFP – II BLASCO DISPUTATIO: SINGULAR TERMS IN FICTION (October 19th-20th 2017, Valencia)

2nd Call for papers
[Extended deadline 16TH OF JUNE]

BLASCO DISPUTATIO is a yearly workshop designed to promote the discussion on topics in epistemology, metaphysics, the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of language. Each edition of this workshop focuses on a particular issue to be disputed by two invited speakers that will defend divergent, if not opposing, views. A call for papers will be made for contributions that will explore further aspects of the topic.

Views about the role of SINGULAR TERMS IN FICTIONAL DISCOURSE have mostly focussed on prima facie empty terms, made up by authors of fiction, such as ‘Bezukhov’ in War and Peace. Singular terms in fictions that are already in use outside them, such as ‘Napoleon’ in the same work, have not received as much attention. An issue they raise is whether or not theorists –whether or not they are realists about fictional characters– should give them the same treatment that their made-up counterparts receive. In the 2017 Blasco Disputatio, Stacie Friend and Manuel García-Carpintero will argue for contrasting views on this matter. The workshop will also be open to discussing any related issues on the semantics of singular terms in fiction and on other aspects concerning fictional discourse. The invited papers, together with a selection of the submitted papers will appear on a special issue in the journal Disputatio.

Stacie Friend (Birkbeck, University of London), Manuel García-Carpintero (University of Barcelona)

We invite submissions on any aspect of the debate on the semantics of singular terms in fiction and on other philosophical issues concerning fictional discourse. Authors should submit full papers (5000 words) or extended abstracts (2000 words) by June 16th, 2017 [EXTENDED DEADLINE].

Council for Research in Values and Philosophy (RVP) – Invitation to activities 2017-2018

The purpose of the Council for Research in Values and Philosophy (RVP) is to identify areas related to values and social life which are in need of research, to bring together the professional competencies in philosophy and related human sciences needed for this research, and to publish the resulting studies. It does this through local research teams in all parts of the globe, which are interrelated through regional conferences and annual 5-10 week seminars. These respond to the new awareness of the cultural grounds of human life and the newly global character of their interaction.

The Council grew out of a series of international philosophical conferences in India, Jerusalem, Kenya, New York and Bogota beginning in the 1970s. It has promoted team research on cultural heritage and contemporary change resulting in the publication and distribution of over 300 volumes.

The Council is constituted of prominent philosophers and social scientists from the many countries across the world. It was formally organized and incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1983 with 501 C3 status where it directs the Center for the Study of Culture and Values.


-To understand and appreciate ones own culture and the values that shape aspirations and motivate actions.
– To understand other cultures and to develop a positive yet critical appreciation thereof.      
– To build cooperation among peoples by healing deep tensions and promoting peace and cooperation on a global scale


To mobilize research teams to study the nature, interpretation and development of cultures and to apply them to the challenges of contemporary change.
– To publish and distribute the results of these efforts
– To organize extended seminars for deeper exploration of these issues and regional conferences for the coordination of this work.
