PART A - SOCRATIC DIALOGUES

2nd – 4th of August 2019

In Socratic Dialogues of 8 to 10 participants we try to discuss the topic of borders, boundaries and limits from various viewpoints. Previous philosophical knowledge is not required, since the discussions develop from concrete experiences of the participants.


ANNIVERSARY OF GSP AND AWARD CEREMONY

Within Part A of the conference the 25th anniversary of the “Gesellschaft für Sokratisches Philosophieren” will be celebrated.

It includes the award ceremony for the Essay Competition on philosophical aspects of the Socratic Dialogue (http://sfcp.org.uk/essay/).

PART B - LIMITS, BORDERS, BOUNDARIES LECTURES AND WORKSHOPS

4th – 7th of August 2019

In the integral part B of the conference the different philosophical, political and cultural aspects of the problematic topic of borders, boundaries and limits will be looked at from different angles. As a frame for discussion we have selected three subject areas.


PHILOSOPHY- DIALOGUE – EDUCATION
POLITICS – SOCIETY – CIVILIZATION
MAN – EXISTENCE – CULTURE

We want to discuss these subject areas in lectures and workshops that are as open as possible, offer ways of interactive participation and address the controversial positions in a clear and constructive manner.

The full description of the conference and of the subject areas, as well as the conditions of participation and contributing, you can download here [IC-2019-D.pdf] .



PART C - 7th INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM DIALOGICAL PRACTICE AND DIALOGICAL PHILOSOPHISING

The International Colloquium ‘Dialogical Practice and Dialogical Philosophising’ takes place once a year, every time in a different European country (last year in Cambridge, UK). It brings philosophical and dialogical practitioners together to engage in an exchange about their approaches and methods. Interested participants, who are active in this field, can already contact us to enquire about the conditions of participation.
