Spring Conference 2019
The Foundation for the Philosophy of Creativity and the AIPCT are pleased to announce their first (annual) Spring Conference on Creativity. This year’s topic is “Creativity, Pragmatism, and Logic.” The conference runs from 1:00 to 5:00 PM, March 18, 2019. There will be a keynote lecture from 7:00 to 8:30, and pizza will be served in between. Soft drinks and box wine will be available, but attendees are encouraged to bring whatever they prefer to drink. All events are free and open to the public, but your financial support of the AIPCT is always appreciated.
The mission of the FPC Spring Conferences is to promote and advance original and scholarly work in the philosophy of creativity. These programs replace the annual sessions at APA Central and are sponsored by the Central Division Society for the Philosophy of Creativity, now to be known as the Central Society for the Philosophy of Creativity.
