Topic areas


Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems. It involves the rational investigation of the truths and principles of being, knowledge, or conduct. In the academic world, it is concerned with making explicit the nature and significance of ordinary  and scientific beliefs and investigating the intelligibility of concepts by means of rational argument concerning their presuppositions, implications, and interrelationships; in particular, the rational investigation of the nature and structure of reality  (metaphysics), the resources and limits of knowledge (epistemology), the principles and import of moral judgment (ethics), and the relationship between language and reality (semantics).

The Annual International Conference on Philosophy: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow (PYTT) aims to explore the different concepts and subfields of Philosophy and attempt to understand reality and answer fundamental questions about knowledge, life, morality and human  nature. Through sharing and networking, PYTT will provide opportunities for researchers and educators to exchange information answer questions and discuss the rational and logical truths of the world.
