CFP (conf): Time Theories and Music. Philosophy and Music Conference


CFP (conf): Time Theories and Music. Philosophy and Music Conference

Corfu, 27-29 April 2012

The philosophy of time occupies a great part in the metaphysics discussion of both continental and analytic philosophy. From Aristotle through Augustine to Bergson, Husserl, McTaggart, Prior and Tooley –to name but a few-, different conceptions of time have been proposed, ranging from phenomenological approaches to the so-called New B-Theories of time. At the same time, interesting connections can be observed from time theories to the philosophy of history, as well as to other cardinal philosophical issues, like modalities, reference, indexicals, persistence through time, antirealism etc.

On the other hand, given the philosophical significance of time in music, it is only surprising that so little attention is directed to any and all of the above-described themes in theorizing about music. Proposals in those and related subjects are welcome in this Conference. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 30 November 2011. The notification of acceptance will be sent out by end December 2011 the latest. The official languages of the Conference are Greek, French, English.
