Conference Theme(s)

 

Since the onset of the Covid-crisis, the medicinal, epidemiological, virological voice has gained prevalence in the media, and is receiving a heightened attention of the masses. What this distinctive voice says appears to be the incontestable reality, and you better listen to and follow its advice. Yet the philosophical voice, which so far claimed for itself (at least its practical branch) to be guiding us to better ways of life, and assisting us in difficult situations with a proper theory, apparently fell almost silent. As the organizer of this event believes in the true power of philosophy, it is aspired to strengthen philosophy's voice in and for the pandemic crisis. And how could this better be done than via a gathering? Let us not allow this pandemic to refortify once more the conventional hierarchy of the sciences over the humanities; but let us rather take it as an opportunity to retrieve our voice, remodel philosophy as such, and relocate it in the center of public debate!

 

With this aim in mind, the present conference will be a discussion of three main themes: 1. The new normal. 2. A new philosophy? and 3. Philosophy's Voice.
