Axiology Workshop 2024


Venue: McGill University, Montreal

Dates: October 4-5, 2024

Keynote Speaker: John Broome (Oxford)

Canada Research Chair in Value Theory and the Philosophy of Public Policy (PI: Iwao Hirose) is pleased to announce the second annual Axiology Workshop. The workshop is intended to be a friendly forum where analytical value theorists in philosophy, economics, and social sciences get together ( for your information, 2023 program ). It will take place in Montreal on October 4-5, 2024.

We invite submissions of abstracts on any topic in analytical value theory. Topics include (but are not confined to) measurement of personal and general good; interpersonal comparison of goods; interpersonal/intra-personal aggregation of good; dis-aggregation of general good; the nature of impersonal good; the value of existence; population ethics; dispersion of personal good over times; dynamic consistency of good; and so on. There will be at least seven slots for submitted papers.

Abstracts should be max one A4 page (PDF file only), prepared for blind review, and suitable for a 35-minute presentation. Abstracts should state (1) the main result(s) of your analysis and (2) rough outline of your analysis. The abstracts submission page will open on May 1, 2024. 

Speakers of accepted abstracts will be offered (a) workshop dinner and (b) 3 nights of accommodation in downtown Montreal (in the case of multi-authored paper, the corresponding author only).

We welcome and encourage submissions from members of underrepresented groups such as (but not limited to) women and Indigenous persons. A limited number of travel subsidy (airfare up to C$1,000) may be available for speakers of accepted abstract, who are from underrepresented groups. If you consider you are a member of underrepresented groups, please indicate the intention of applying to a travel subsidy in the "comment" box when you submit an abstract. Any information you may provide in the comment box will be treated as strictly confidential. The submission page will open on May 1, 2024 and close on July 15, 2024.

Attendance is free but requires registration as the space is limited. The registration page will open in September 2024. If you are interested to act as a session chair (e.g., to secure your travel fund), please indicate your interest in the comment box on the registration page.
