CFP: Representation and Evaluation

The Canadian Journal of Philosophy hereby calls for papers on the topic “Representation and Evaluation” for a special volume edited by Matt Bedke and Stefan Sciaraffa. The volume provides an occasion to explore the role of representation in theories of meaning and mind with special attention to the implications this has for metaethical, or more broadly metanormative, theory. As such, we welcome fresh assessments of the representational purport (or lack thereof) of normative language and thought (e.g., assertions and thoughts concerning oughts, reasons, values, justification and the like). The due date is June 15, 2017. Submission guidelines are below the fold.
