Essay Prize

***2015: "The Varieties of Modality"***
For its 2015 essay prize (500 GBP), dialectica invites submissions on the nature, epistemology, logic and semantics of modality in any of its multifarious guises: metaphysical, epistemic, nomic, deontic, conceptual, etc. We are particularly interested in submissions that explore interesting interactions between modal notions of different kinds, or that develop original proposals about how to understand some specific variety. To submit your paper, please send it in a format suitable for blind refereeing to philipp.blum@philosophie.ch before the end of the year 2015.
