See the schedule, over in the “Announcements” box on the right. All are certainly welcome; the presentations have breaks among them so you can move among rooms if you like. Also, if you’re interested in dining with the philosophers, let Huenemann know.



  1. You are a cruel and devilish being Charlie, for taunting us believing creatures with this, fully knowing the Frye Street Quartet plays about that same time! My belief may not grant me multiplicity in space and time, but I yearn all the same. Gah! Only a Nietzschean could possibly conceive of such a scheduling with no moral qualms.



  2. Huenemann says:

    Ah, but the Fry Street doesn’t play ’til 7:30. You can still attend the conference, though you might miss dinner.


  3. That’s precisely what I was also hoping to attend! I love philosopher dinners. sigh.


  4. Bialkowski says:

    I really wish I didn’t work so much… Hopefully I can make it, will God’s wrath rain down upon me if I am late?


  5. Huenemann says:

    Not at all!


  6. Bialkowski says:

    Then I will definitely make it, at least for a sizable chunk.


  7. He might sit in the back with a club and a menacing look though. Just ignore him, he’s been all bark and little bite since having a kid.

    Hopefully Kleiner doesn’t put me in a pretzelhold for that one…..


  8. source says:

    He had better not, because that was the funniest thing I’ve read on the interwebs all day.

    I’d like to come to the dinner (I’m Ben Siler, if you can’t tell from my portrait). Does this count as letting Huenemann know?


  9. Huenemann says:

    Huenemann knows.
