From 3 to 6 October 2022 the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Paraná (PUCPR, Brazil) will host the XX International Congress of Contemporary Philosophy on “Philosophy in Brazil: Current Trends and Perspectives”, organized by the PUCPR’s Post-graduate Programme in Philosophy (PPGF).   This hybrid event will revolve around the concepts of independence and identity as a basis for reflecting on the current trends in Brazilian philosophy 200 years after the Country’s independence. This discussion will also focus on the theoretical, ethical, aesthetic, and political categories developed since the Modern Art Week, which took place in São Paulo in 1922. Among the themes addressed by the congress: 1) The independence and identity of Brazilian thought in relation to the modern and contemporary European philosophical tradition; 2) Brazilian philosophy in art and literature, and its current identity; 3) The public role of women and gender issues; 4) The philosophical challenges related to philosophical decolonization; 5) Cultural pluralism and indigenous identities. These topics will be presented, discussed, and deepened in an interdisciplinary perspective, thanks to the contribution of national and international experts, as well as through a mini-course on “Intellectual Independence: Art, Cinema and Literature in the classroom”. The congress aims to contribute to the achievement of an open and democratic society, as well as a pluralistic, reflective and responsible Brazilian identity for the future. The planned activities address not only the academic audience, but also the civic community in general.
