Philosophy Program Notes

Sabre Fellow Frederic R. Kellogg served on the organizing committee for a May 1998 conference in Karpacz, Poland, on "Democracy and the Post-Totalitarian Experience," sponsored by the American and Polish Branches of the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy. The conference proceedings are being edited for prospective publication by Rodopi Publishers, Amsterdam.

The 1999 edition of Twentieth Century Criticism, a reference anthology of major essays published periodically by Gale Research Publications, will reprint two pieces by Sabre Director Josiah Lee Auspitz on the American philosopher Charles Sanders Peirce. The articles previously appeared in Commentary and The American Scholar.
