The First Dead Philosopher’s Carnival

Posted by Sam D on November 29, 2007

2007 saw the death of philosophers including Jean Baudrillard, Susan
Hurley, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, Richard Rorty, and Robert C. Solomon.

Dialectic, (of which I am an Editor), in association with the Philosopher’s Carnival, is hosting the
first Dead Philosopher’s Carnival (as the 60th Philosophers’ Carnival).

We will be looking for posts relating to the work of those philosophers who have died in 2007 and those who have
celebrated notable anniversaries in 2007. I’d encourage people to think broadly and not limit themselves to the obvious academic philosophers – Kurt Vonnegut died in April, and I know at least one person who would argue that even though he wasn’t a philosopher, his work was of philosophical importance. I don’t necessarily agree with this, but you get the idea.

The Carnival will commence on the 7th of January 2008.

Submissions will close on the 2nd of January 2008.
