2-hour-long discussion –click here – circled around the following issues/questions:
  1. How does Santayana characterize the spiritual life in PSL and did his characterization of the spiritual life change or develop in his later works?
  2. What does Santayana mean by ‘contemplation’ of essences?
  3. To what extent is Santayana’s naturalistic concept of spirit an interpretation of supernatural conceptions?
  4. What is the relationship between the spiritual life and knowledge?
  5. Is it possible, and if so to what extent, to lead a spiritual life without having gone through a process of metanoia or disintoxication of values?
  6. How do we explain the separation of moral from spiritual life, when morality is impossible without spirit?
  7. Did Santayana think that a life devoted to purely spiritual concerns is a desirable way to live and did he think a detached or observing life preferable to an engaged one?
  8. Did Santayana live a spiritual life and is his system of philosophy a version of the spiritual life?
  9. Santayana claims that “Pure spiritual life cannot be something compensatory, a consolation for having missed more solid satisfactions” (PSL). What does Santayana mean by this claim and does the spiritual life offer any sort of moral consolation?
  10. Does Santayana’s account of spirit and the spiritual life have any connections to contemporary, popular views of mindfulness or meditation?

Call for papers: Overheard in Seville and The Angus Kerr-Lawson Prize



With the completion of the 2017 Bulletin and with our annual meeting coming up next week, we shall soon begin preparing for the 2018Bulletin. Overhead in Seville: the Bulletin of George Santayana Society has published every year since 1983. The 2018 issue will mark thirty six years of publication. We welcome the submission of articles and other works for the next issue. Critical and historical essays on Santayana's life and works are, of course, the core of our publishing endeavor. We also encourage short feuilleton style pieces that suggest an idea or tell an anecdote of Santayana's life or that of his contemporaries, antecedents, or followers. We will entertain creative pieces that use Santayana's life or work as a starting point. We are also looking for original philosophic inquiry that is based on some theme important in Santayana's work.
The deadline for new material is March 1, 2018. Submission guidelines can be downloaded fromhttp://georgesantayanasociety.org/SubmisionGuidelines.pdf. They are also found in the latest issue of Overheard in Seville, which can be downloaded from http://georgesantayanasociety.org/Bulletin2017/Overheard-in-Seville.35.2017_4.pdf. If you would like to submit something for the coming year, but are not sure you can meet the March 1 deadline, please send a proposal or an outline by the end of January.
Manuscripts and proposals should be sent to submissions@georgesantayanasociety.orgAll submissions will receive conscientious peer review and editing. You can expect to hear back from manuscript submission within three months; proposal submission within one month.
Also submissions for the Angus Kerr-Lawson prize from those not more than five years out of graduate school by the end of 2019 are welcome until May 21, 2018. The winner will be notified by September 2018 and invited to speak at the 2019 annual meeting. The winning essay will be submitted for publication in the 2019 issue.

Born in Spain, Jorge / George Santayana (1863-1952), a poet, philosopher and professor at Harvard University for twenty years, returns home through the Instituto Cervantes. The occasion cannot be more propitious: to celebrate the critical edition of The Life of Reason, Santayana’s work that has most influenced American naturalism. The panel will include John Lachs (Centennial Professor, University of Vanderbilt), Daniel Moreno (IES Miguel Servet, Spain) and Martin A. Coleman (The Santayana Edition, IUPUI). This panel discussion on Santayana will be moderated by Sean Kelly (Department of Philosophy, Harvard University).
