Call for Papers

The impact of David Lewis on contemporary philosophy is still tangible, ten years after his
premature departure. The conference intends to discuss Lewis’ long-lasting contribution in the
fields of logic and metaphysics, with particular focus on the nature of modality, his views on
possible worlds, counterfactuals, causation, and convention. We also wish to provide a setting for
young philosophers and logicians to present topics related to Lewis’ philosophy and discuss the
state of art of his legacy in the contemporary philosophical debate.

Sonia Roca-Royes  (University of Stirling)
