The Udo Keller Stiftung Forum Humanum (Hamburg) has generously provided 10 conferenc grants ($2200  each) to enable doctoral students and new PhDs (not earlier than 2013) to participate in the conference. The grant is meant to cover all expenses. Recipients will have the opportunity to attend the conference on Friday and Saturday and to present a paper (15 double-?spaced pages) on the topic of the conference. To create space for the discussion of their contributions, a Forum Humanum seminar will be held on Thursday, February 22, on the same topic as the main conference. All grant recipients will be expected to participate in this seminar and introduce not their own but one of the other papers for discussion. Five papers will be chosen for publication along with the conference contributions in the Claremont Studies of Philosophy of Religion (Mohr Siebeck Tübingen). We invite doctoral students and recent PhDs to submit a one page CV and a 5-­?page abstract of  their proposed paper on the topic of ‘The Unique, the Singular, and the Individual: The Debate about the Non-­Comparable’ (Word, double-­?spaced, anonymous for blind review).
