CFP "More Too Funky Causation" (Funky III), February 23-24, 2011, Ghent.

The Department of Philosophy and Moral Sciences, Ghent University, Belgium, is proud to announce a call for papers for:
"More Too Funky Causation" (Funky III), February 23-24, 2011.
Keynote speaker is Jeffrey K. McDonough (Harvard): "Leibniz on Agency and Optimal Form"
The conference is the third to explore *funky* notions of causation in historical perspective.
'Funky' causes are defined negatively as those notions of causation that are neither final nor (Humean) efficient causation.
We welcome paper proposals that explore a funky cause in depth. Topics need not be limited to Early Modern topics or figures,
but we would especially welcome papers on formal causation.
Abstracts (no more than 500 words) prepared for blind review should be mailed to Eric Schliesser ( by December 1. Inquiries can be directed to same address.
