Instytut Filozofii i Socjologii Polskiej Akademii Nauk [Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences] would like to invite to a conference “Heidegger in the East-Central Europe”. The subject matter of the conference is the presence of Martin Heidegger’s thought in the culture of the countries of East-Central Europe. Restricting the philosophical problematic to geopolitical boundaries results from the common – in contradistinction to other European countries – experience which befell particular nations and societies inhabiting the area lying in the East of Europe.

The purpose of the conference is to summarize and describe the legacy of Eastern European contacts with Heidegger’s thought. The conference is supposed to answer the following questions: what are the main directions of the reception of his philosophy in East-Central Europe? Is there any characteristic hint of this reception which would allow us to speak of the emergence of a particular intellectual formation?

The deadline for submitting applications: 30 June 2020.

The applications coupled with abstracts are to be sent to the secretary of the Conference at the following e-mail address:

Language: EnglishGerman.

The deadline for announcing the acceptance of applications: 10 July 2020.
