We are pleased to invite you to the XVIII Conference Mediterranean Roots of Philosophy - Mediterranean Humanism: On the 500th Anniversary of the Death of Marko Marulić.

The conference is organized by the Croatian Philosophical Society and the Department of Philosophy of the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Split, Croatia. It will be held from April 11 to 13, 2024 in Split, Croatia. 

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Marko Marulić, the father of Croatian literature, a humanist writer praised for his philosophically stimulating works. Because of that, we decided to dedicate this year's conference to Mediterranean humanism. The conference is open to submissions related to Humanism and Renaissance philosophy, not necessarily directly related to the work of Marko Marulić.

In addition to that special, this year's theme, the symposium is also open to two permanent topics: philosophy in the Mediterranean and globalisation challenges and multiculturalism in the Mediterranean region.

According to that, the symposium program will be divided into the following thematic units:

  • Marko Marulić in the Past, Present and Future
  • Humanism and Renaissance in the Mediterranean
  • Philosophy in the Mediterranean: authors, theories, concepts 
  • Globalization challenges and Multiculturalism in the Mediterranean 

Interdisciplinary research is welcomed. 

Languages of the conference

The working languages of the conference are Croatian (and related South Slavic languages) and English.

Conference structure

All thematic units are interdisciplinary. Individual panels will be organized according to the principle of thematic or methodological affinity.

The conference part of the symposium will take place on April 11 and 12. On April 13, we will organize an optional tour of the city of Split, with special emphasis on its Renaissance history and Humanism. 

Venue of the conference

The conference takes place at the University of Split, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences,
