The Society for Ethics

"Taking Ethics Seriously"

Established in 1995, The Society for Ethics (SE) serves the purpose of promoting philosophical research in ethics, broadly construed, including areas such as (but not limited to) ethical theory, moral, social and political philosophy, as well as areas of applied ethics such as (but not limited to) legal, business and medical ethics. Although the SE is primarily a philosophical society, others are also encouraged to become members.

The Society for Ethics will hold meetings in conjunction with the American Philosophical Association's three annual divisional meetings (Eastern, Pacific and Central). The format of such meetings will include both invited Keynote Speakers as well as refereed papers, some or all of which will be published in revised form in The Journal of Ethics: An International Philosophical Review.

The Society for Ethics herein issues a call for papers for each of its three meetings to be held in conjunction with the American Philosophical Association meetings. Papers should be submitted in triplicate to:

J. Angelo Corlett, President
The Society for Ethics
Department of Philosophy
Georgia State University
Atlanta, GA 30303
phljac@panther.gsu.edu

Papers submitted to The Society for Ethics must not exceed 12 double-spaced pages, including notes/references. Papers that are submitted for consideration to be presented to the SE must not be under publication consideration. Deadlines for submission are as follows:1 April 1997 for the SE meetings to be held in conjunction with the American Philosophical Association's 1997 Eastern Divisional meetings in Philadelphia; 1 April 1997 for the SE meeting to be held in conjunction with the APA's 1998 Pacific Divisional meetings in a location to be announced; and 1 April 1997 for the SE meetings to be held in conjunction with the APA's 1998 Pacific Divisional meetings (location to be announced), and with the APA's 1998 Central Divisional meetings to be held at Chicago's Palmer House Hilton, respectively. Papers on any topic in ethics are welcome. Announcements of papers accepted for presentation at SE meetings will be made by 1 June 1997.

The Society for Ethics distributes an annual Newsletter, consisting of announcements of upcoming SE meetings (listing the dates, locations and times of meetings, speakers, their respective titles and abstracts of the papers to be presented), announcements for other ethics-related societies and conferences/workshops worldwide, and a list of "books received" from publishers of ethics-related books. Each member of the SE will receive a copy of the SE Newsletter by way of regular mail service.

The Society for Ethics is an academic society which seeks to promote philosophical research in ethics without promoting a particular ideological creed or agenda, except that of research excellence in ethics. The SE seeks to promote excellence in research and scholarship in ethics in an inclusive manner, without excluding certain ethical topics or points of view. The SE seeks to build cooperative links with other ethics societies and philosophical associations, such as The American Philosophical Association, the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics, The British Society for Ethical Theory, the Canadian Society for the Study of Practical Ethics and the International Society for Environmental Ethics.
