To maximize collaboration among authors and encourage philosophical coherence, volume editor(s) are encouraged to have workshops. Each workshop has three main goals. It will set a firm deadline for contributions, allow scholars to discuss their work, and make the volume as consistent in terminology and ideas as possible. Having exchanged drafts of chapters ahead of time, contributors will be able to discuss their ideas and coordinate their efforts at the workshop. Each workshop will also encourage a broader interdisciplinary range than historians of philosophy usually attempt. Workshop organizers are encouraged to invite specialists from other disciplines with the aim of approaching the concept from other perspectives (artistic, cultural, literary, and so on). Many editors will want to arrange their own workshop. I am hoping to find funding for a few at Columbia. Let me know if you would be interested, although I cannot make any promises!
