Who's Got The Power? Philosophical Critique of Social and Political Structures
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
We live in interesting times. In recent years, we have been experiencing increasingly unequal distribution of wealth, both worldwide and on national levels, growing nationalism in Europe and North America, openly hostile racism, public support for fascist demagogues, and sexism is alive and well. At the moment, the outlook is enormously worrying in the world's largest democratic nations.
Perhaps prompted by the circumstances, analytic philosophers have in increasing numbers shown interest in various social and political issues. Social and political philosophy has always been present, but there has been growing interest in applying tools and concepts more traditionally associated with other branches of analytic philosophy to social and political issues.
The aim of the conference in Reykjavík is to gather together philosophers who are interested in pursuing these matters further.
