International Socratic Colloquiums in Sofia, Bulgaria 2015 and Rovereto, Italy 2016
The idea behind the international symposiums is to discuss and theorise upon the experience with dialogical philosophising within the neosocratic tradition, and other dialogical approaches as well. The format of these events is flexible, including different types of group and individual work. In Sofia, statements were given by speakers and discussed in group sessions, and short SDs were conducted and thouroughly reflected upon. In Italy the format was a bit different – no individual statements were given, except an introductory speech by Dr. Paolo Dordoni upon the main topic – interpretation. This was followed by a number of different activities, including discussion, working with texts, tackling a casus, Socratic Dialogues, and a group session on the main topic. Remarkably, this allowed the multitude of theoretical angles to converge, bringing about a cohesion between the participants in the colloquium.
