Topic areas


Philosophy of the City Research Group in collaboration with LABONT – Center for Ontology of the University of Turin is inviting proposals for presentations to the Philosophy of the City Annual Conference 2022. 

Research questions and areas that exemplify a particularly philosophical interest in cities have emerged within the recent decade, showing how philosophers and philosophically inclined interdisciplinary scholars can uniquely contribute to an understanding of the city.
