Philosophy: Global Interdisciplinary Comparative Studies

A Small Symposium on “Philosophy: Global Interdisciplinary Comparative Studies”
as part of the 17th Annual International Conference on Philosophy
3-26 May 2022, Athens, Greece
Sponsored by the Athens Journal of Humanities & Arts

The Philosophy Unit of ATINER organizes a Small Symposium onPhilosophy: Global Interdisciplinary Comparative Studies” as part of the 17th Annual International Conference on Philosophy, 23-26 May 2022, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Humanities & Arts and the Athens Journal of Philosophy.

The intent of this symposium is to integrate important disciplines that have deep historical connections with philosophy and/or thematic relationship in a global, that is, intercultural scope. Philosophy parented psychology, sociology, economics, and politics. Law, science, technology, and art, though they arguably have independent roots, have drawn philosophical interpretations and critiques. It is natural that philosophy should be the discipline that reaches out to others and invites them to integrating discourse to enrich the human cognition of the world. 

You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair of a session or observer.
