Организаторы: Tennessee Value and Agency “TVA”


The UT Philosophy Department’s annual Tennessee Value and Agency “TVA” Conference was inaugurated in the fall of 2012.  The Conference focuses on and advances work in two areas central to the Department’s research mission and graduate program:  value theory and agency/action theory.  Each year there is a conference theme, addressed by keynote speakers and roughly a dozen presenters selected by the conference organizers upon blind review of abstracts received in response to an internationally distributed call for abstracts.  (See the program for the 2012 “TVA” conference here, and the 2013 “TVA” conference here.)  The conference takes place over a Thursday through Sunday in the fall term.  The Conference is free and open to the public; students and scholars with special interests in the conference theme are encouraged to attend.  Participants and attendees enjoy high quality sessions with lively and productive discussions that typically spill over to receptions, meals, and so on.

The 2014 Tennessee Value and Agency “TVA” Conference will take place all day November 7 & 8 (travelers may want to arrive on Nov. 6 and depart on Nov. 9) on the University of Tennessee Campus, 1210 McClung Tower.  The conference will focus on (rethinking) the relationships between practical reason, moral judgment and moral sense/sensibility/sentiment in the moral life, with an eye toward bringing structure and clarity to the aims and ambitions of current work in moral psychology and moral theory.  Keynote speakers will be Amelie Rorty (Tufts) and Talbot Brewer (UVA).  To have a paper considered for presentation, please submit a 500 word abstract (for a paper no longer than 4000 words, or 40 minutes presentation time) by July 1, 2014, to   The authors of abstracts/papers selected for presentation will be notified by August 15, 2014, and the conference program will be set and announced by September 1, 2014.
