7th CEU INTERNATIONAL PHILOSOPHY GRADUATE CONFERENCE

In most philosophical disciplines, the notion of fundamentality is of crucial importance. Discussions on which normative concepts are fundamental and what fundamental rights human beings have are central in both moral and political philosophy. In metaphysics, disputes about consciousness and ontological dependence all hinge on the problem of the fundamental. In the philosophy of science, lively debate continues as to whether any special science concepts are fundamental and what features are essential to good scientific explanation.

These are just some of the ways in which the notion of fundamentality can be essential in various areas of philosophical enquiry. We therefore conceive of the theme of the conference broadly and we invited spekaers who's papers engage with the notion of fundamentality from various perspectives.
