Theme: Nature and the practice of philosophy. What is the relation between the status of humans and the conception of human beings towards nature?
Everything one does relates to one‘s place in nature. But not always are we humans conscious of our place in nature. How do we contemplate nature when we philosophize? What does it mean to be a part of nature or to be one with nature? Can the practice of philosophy be of benefit to nature? Can the practice of philosophy make us humans responsible or open towards nature? If I‘m responsible, am I responsible to myself, to the future, or, perhaps, something else? How does the practice of philosophy affect environmental issues? How does the practice of philosophy reflect on nature? What does our place in nature say about us?
By mixing our practical wisdom (phronesis) and experience over different fields of philosophical practice, we search for possible ways to philosophize, problematize core values of philosophical practice and look at potential challenges and opportunities. We do this through philosophical dialogue, hoping to develop our practice, gain new insights, and raise new questions.
Please note, on the Saturday afternoon, a walk in the nature has been scheduled for the conference participants. On the Saturday evening, there will be a dinner, where each attendee pays for themselves.
