CFP: Symposium on Rasmussen-Den Uyl’s “The Perfectionist Turn”

I think I’ve posted this before, but thought I’d repost this CFP on Rasmussen and Den Uyl’s forthcoming book, The Perfectionist Turn, from the editors of Reason Papers. Here’s an article that states Rasmussen-Den Uyl’s case in a nutshell. I’ll try to see if I can find an informative blurb on the book, but I take it that the book is in part an answer to the problematic David Potts raises in his recent series here on “Morals and the Free Society.” For more information, contact Reason Papers at

Douglas Rasmussen and Douglas Den Uyl’s The Perfectionist Turn

In conjunction with a session to be held by the American Association for the Philosophic Study of Society at the APA’s Eastern Division meeting in January 2017, Reason Papers is soliciting additional contributions for a Spring 2017 symposium on Douglas Rasmussen and Douglas Den Uyl’s forthcoming book The Perfectionist Turn: From Meta-Norms to Meta-Ethics.  This latest book by Rasmussen and Den Uyl focuses on “individualistic perfectionism,” making a case for the connection between perfectionist ethics and non-perfectionist politics and defending it against rival contemporary theories of ethics and politics.  Submissions are due by February 1, 2017.
