Critical Issues in Eastern and Western Philosophy
19th December 2016
Nepal Academy Hall, Kathmandu
The Department of Philosophy at the Nepal Academy, Kathmandu, Nepal, together with the Department of Philosophy at the University of Malta, Malta are collaborating by organizing a conference at the Nepal Academy on issues that are pertinent to the Eastern and Western philosophical traditions.
Philosophy, as a discipline with its own distinct territory, is undergoing a current revival of interest that is encouraging to practitioners of the subject. The questions that philosophers of both traditions are engaging with appeal, not only to academic professionals, but also to a broader public that thirsts for a greater degree of understanding of issues that are central to their lives.
To this end, a call for papers is being issued for those who are interested in presenting a 20-minute paper (3,000 words max.).
Speakers are invited to discuss any theme related to:
• Philosophy of Technology
• Philosophy of Communication
• Political Philosophy
• Philosophy of Computer Games
• Comparative Philosophy
• Philosophy of Art
Those interested in participating are asked to submit an abstract of a paper (c. 300 words) by email to the seminar organizing team. For Nepali contributors the abstract should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org while international contributors should sent their papers to email@example.com by Friday 14th October. Notification on acceptance of papers will be sent by Friday 28th October. The deadline for submission of paper is Friday 2nd December 2016.
