International Conference 2023

Tuesday, 24 October 2023

"Can there be new paths for knowledge and humanity? Transformations - Progress - Visions of the Future"

From November 16th to 19th, 2023, at Karl-Franzens-University, Meerscheinschlössl, Mozartgasse 3, 8010 Graz, Austria.

Our society is constantly changing, experiencing rapid transformations in terms of the new composition of society, artificial intelligence (AI), environmental issues, the future of education, political decisions, or increasingly significant changes. However, changes can be the engine of progress, compelling societies to chart new paths.

In-depth philosophical analyses are necessary to formulate a contemporary understanding of humanity that remains adaptable and relevant in a constantly evolving world. What possibilities does philosophy offer to support society in these processes of change?

The congress is planned as an inter- and transcultural forum to facilitate philosophical discussions about current phenomena, as well as to connect with other scientific disciplines, promote mutual exchange, and introduce new approaches to provide a foundation of knowledge and ideas for concept development in the fields of education and philosophy.

Location: University of Graz Meerscheinschlössl, Mozartgasse 3, 8010 Graz.
