Producing of actual humanitarian knowledge implies continual reflection (and autoreflecion as well) aimed to refine and improve academic set of resourses, abilities and skills. Critical reconsideration and verification of the various disputable current issues as well as profound revaluation of the questions already raised in order to achieve a high degree of scientific perfection – that is the modus pursued by the scholars of the Humanities since the Ancient Greece.

Different modes of thinking (being voiced in the academic environment) actually determine different modes of answers concerning methodology as well as descriptive-positive aspects.

The organizers announce the call for papers addressed those participants who are interested in comprehension of the current processes of the reflection in the history of philosophy and theology; philosophy of language and logic; ontology and gnoseology; philosophy of communication.
