The Max Scheler Society of North America invites members of the international community of scholars to participate in their biannual meeting. This year’s meeting will convene in conjunction with the meeting for the Central Division of the American Philosophical Association, Feb. 26-30, 2014 at Palmer House Hotel in Chicago, IL. Our sessions are tentatively scheduled to take place on Thursday, February 27 from 9am-12pm and Friday, February 28 from 7pm-10pm.

The intent of the society and the meeting is to foster a critical discussion of Max Scheler’s work and its broader philosophical significance. Papers working to show the relevance of Scheler’s thought as it pertains to present philosophical discourse or that develop new themes in his work are encouraged.

Participants will have about 35 minutes to present their work. Though completed papers are preferred, abstracts of at least 500 words in length will also be considered. Deadline for submission is October 15, 2013.

This year we are pleased to announce that we will be offering a $1000 travel grant in honor of Manfred S. Frings. The award will be granted to a graduate student or junior faculty member based on the strength and quality of their submission. If you would like to be considered for this award, please indicate such on your cover sheet.

All submissions can either be sent electronically or via post to the contact information given below. Because all submissions will be reviewed blindly by the selection committee, submissions should have a separate cover sheet with name and contact information. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by November 1.
