Please prepare an abstract of no more than 500 words for anonymous review. The abstract should clearly specify the research question, which methods have been used, and which the results. Please add 4 to 6 keywords that best describe your research project. All contributions will be considered for both a talk and a poster presentation. If you wish to be considered for only one of these options, make a respective comment below your abstract. Please only submit pdf files. Each researcher can be involved in no more than three abstracts. Please submit your abstract to EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=xphieu2021
Submissions can address any topic in experimental philosophy, including but not limited to Xphi of metaphysics, language, mind, morality, aesthetics, and philosophy of law. As always, we wish to cover a large variety of experimental topics. We also encourage the submission of abstracts which take a critical stance on experimental philosophy or which develop or discuss new empirical methods. In order to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the word “robot” by the Czech writer Karel Čapek, we also welcome papers on the topic of moral intuitions about future technologies, such as robots and artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, human enhancement, etc.
We strongly encourage young researchers, including master students and PhD students to submit their work.
