Laying It On Thick

[cross-posted at Austro-Athenian Empire]

The Molinari Society will be hosting its second symposium in conjunction with the Eastern Division of the American Philosophical Association in New York City, December 27-30, 2005. The topic is the relation between"thin" libertarianism (i.e., libertarianism understood as a narrowly political doctrine) and"thick" libertarianism (i.e., libertarianism understood as essentially integrated into some broader set of social or cultural values). We were gratified at the high number of excellent proposals generated by our call for abstracts (now closed). Current session information is listed below; precise days and times will be announced once they are finalised.

Sounds interesting, Roderick. Will these papers be published somewhere or available online?
