Subject: Philosophy & Computing CFP

Philosophy & Computing

The journal is devoted to the use of computers and computational ideas
in both research and teaching in philosophy, applications of ideas from
philosophy in computing, and philosophical questions about the
foundations and impact of computers and computational ideas. Examples of
the first include the development of computer programs for the discovery
of scientific theories (philosophy of science), work on automated proof
construction (logic), work on case-based reasoning (ethical theory),
material on the use of text-analysis software (history of philosophy),
and the description and evaluation of innovative computer-assited
instructional materials. Examples of the second include the application
of speech act theory to computer programming languages or the
application of work on metaphor and analogy to natural language
understanding. Examples of the last include topics in computer ethics,
work on the nature of knowledge and expert systems, and discussions of
the possibility of artificial life.

Philosophy & Computing is the official journal of CAP. For information
