Philosophy across Boundaries is the general theme of the 25th World Congress of Philosophy, that will be held in Rome, Italy, from August 1st to August 8th, 2024.
Under the joint responsibility of the International Federation of Philosophical Societies, the Italian Philosophical Society, and Sapienza University of Rome, the 25th World Congress intends to foster scholarly and public reflections on the future of our societies. By questioning human beings and their diverse ways of thinking, agency, and relationships, along with the social, economic, political, technological, and cultural destiny of our common world, it will:
- Use philosophical reflections as a springboard for public discourses on urgent shared concerns, including inequalities, cultural and gender diversity, natural environment, justice, rights, and political transformations on a global scale
- Enlarge the scope of philosophical debates to involve representatives of the sciences, economy, information, medicine and public health, technology, and public institutions.
- Actively encourage and defend diversity in all forms by bringing together ideas, traditions, and people from all continents and regions.
- Dismantle rigid cultural and disciplinary boundaries by focusing on the complex interconnectedness of human civilizations from antiquity to the present.
The 2024 Congress invites shared reflections and discussions on the models we would like our societies to be inspired by. It encourages large participation of students and young scholars from all continents and regions. It will provide a unique opportunity to present and share diverse philosophical concerns from all regions of the world. Finally, it is committed to pluralism and it aims at engaging reflectively and critically with the struggles of our time, addressing its main ethical, social, political, and spiritual concerns.
We intend to hold the whole Congress in presence.
The Congress will focus on five Spheres of Boundaries, each of which will include one Plenary Session and two Symposia. There will also be eighty-nine Sections for Contributed Papers, Endowed lectures, Special lectures, Round tables, Invited sessions, Society sessions, and Student sessions.
The Organizing Committee wishes the Congress to be preceded by preparatory events, meetings, conferences. To organize a cultural event under the auspices of the 25th World Congress of Philosophy, please send a request to email@example.com
