Call for Papers: Challenges for Environmental and Political Philosophy in the Anthropocene

Submission deadline: 

Thursday, 8. December 2022

Place: 

Bratislava, SR

Date: 

Monday, 16. January 2023 to Tuesday, 17. January 2023

The international conference will focus on the overlaps between environmental and political philosophy in order to foster the understanding of and dealing with current global environmental crises. The theme of the conference is based on the assumption that the meaningfulness of political decisions in the Anthropocene era depends on the understanding and acceptance of the Earth as a universal methodological horizon. From this premise it follows that an adequate political or social philosophy should be, first of all, environmental. Since the aim of the conference is to create a space for critical discussion on the possibilities of creating an effective international research platform that could authentically contribute to the reflection of current policies that deepen social and environmental inequality, we welcome contributions that are characterized by originality and relevance to the conference theme.

We will welcome the scientific perspectives on the basic needs, interests, and values in the Anthropocene, for instance regarding a planetary ecological civilization or the intercultural differences concerning perceived threats to humanity. To inspire and enrich discussions, we invite prominent scholars of both environmental and political philosophy for a keynote presentation, leading to a more comprehensive picture of the relevant current debates and arguments in the field.

The conference will take place on January 16 – 17, 2023, in Bratislava, Slovakia, and will be held in English.

We cordially invite you to participate and look forward to your contributions. Please, send your abstracts (.docx or .pdf) of no more than 200 words by 8th December, 2022 to filoevde@savba.sk.

Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the journal Filozofia.
