Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Meeting the Other as a Challenge is the topic of XV International Academic Conference “Philosophy: The New Generation” that will take place in the National University of "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy" on April 21-22, 2023.
Is it possible to map the Other? Can we make sketches on the borderlines of disciplines and approaches to various experiences of otherness, it's ways of functioning and construction of the Other? From the condition of war and other disruptions, from (neo)colonial oppression to ways of meeting the non-human, the Other penetrates the work of our intellect capabilities and requires conceptualization.
We encourage you to join the discussion of these topics and expect your contemplations to include but not be limited to the following directions:
1)Other life experience
2)Other methodologies and topics
-feminism, gender studies, intersectionality
-philosophical reflection of “Other” (Other and Me, Other as foreign)
-philosophical traditions outside Western philosophy: national philosophies, Muslim tradition, Eastern philosophy, African philosophy
3)Other as non-human
-artificial intelligence, extra-terrestrial civilisations
-God, deity, the sacred
-animals, plants, mushrooms
4)Other as a review of the canonical
-other as interpretations of canonical topics and texts
-other topics and texts of canonical philosophers
We intend to publish the abstracts. Participation in the conference is free. The conference will be held online on Zoom.
