1 thought on “SSHAP 2017 Program and Registration”
I looked at the program. It suggests that analytic philosophy developed only in UK, USA and Jena, perhaps in Vienna, although it is uncertain whether Carnap is considered as Austrian or American. No paper on philosophers living in Scandinavia, Poland, Russia, etc. I understand that it is a question of proposals, but SSHAP should take more care about historical accuracy. For example, there is session on women. In Poland we had more important female analytic philosophers (years 1918-1939) than worked in other countries taken together. This kind of Anglo-Saxon historical chauvinism (for instance, the volume of the Routledge History of Philosophy, devoted to the philosophy of language in Anglo-Saxon world begins with … Frege) is ridiculous,
Sorry for this remarks, but I feel myself entitled to protest against marginalization of important parts of contemporary worlds.
