>Evian (Lake Geneva / Lac Leman / Genfer See), France
>July / Juillet / Juli 13-19, 2003.
>The goal of the International French-German Philosophy Colloquium is to
>bring Continental philosophy, and in particular contemporary French
>philosophy, into dialogue with other philosophical traditions. The
>colloquium aims at the greatest possible diversity with respect to the
>native languages and intellectual backgrounds of participants.
>This year's topic, "What is a human being?", seems particularly suited to
>achieve this goal. Indeed, it is not only according to Kant that the
>question of the human being is regarded as the most essential question that
>lies behind all other philosophical questions. It can be read as the driving
>force behind many of the most important philosophical movements of the 20th
>century and as a hidden connection between them. The question even drives
>those currents in contemporary philosophy that have radically called into
>question the concept of the human being and have pleaded for its abolition.
>The colloquium invites participants to pose the question of the human being
>once again and to debate its relevance for today's philosophy.
>Call for Papers:
>We invite half-page proposals for papers and workshops for immediate
>submission. The final deadline is March 31, 2003. Please send your proposals
>to one of the organizers.
