MPA 2023 Call for Papers

What is the good-enough life? When has one lived enough? Done enough? Enjoyed enough? For this conference, we are interested in exploring both ‘floors’ and ‘ceilings.’ What is required to live a minimally decent life (floor)? Are there points at which a limit has been reached, beyond which it is not desirable to proceed (ceiling)? What does the good-enough life say about the limits of our moral and political obligations to one another? Should consideration of feasibility or ecological constraints figure into how we define enough?

Submission Details:

While the MPA is a regional organization, we seek broad participation in this conference. Philosophers from all institutions and locations are encouraged to submit abstracts.

Submission should include a title page with the title of the presentation, author’s name, institutional affiliation, and email address. A 500-word abstract should be prepared for blind review and sent as a second file (docx or pdf only). Email all submissions or questions to Dr. Manuel Rodeiro.
