Conferences at the Eastern Philosophy Section
With a great pleasure we announce Call for Papers for the 3rd Cracow Eastern Conference, dedicated to the philosophy, culture, arts and religions of the East. This year's conference is also cofinanced by the Social Fund of the European Union Programme.
Word in the Cultures of the East
Sound - Language - Book
Cracow, 28th - 30th November 2013
This year’s meeting will be dedicated to the issues of sound, language and writing which, although frequently featuring in contemporary Western thought, are rarely and still insufficiently addressed through their long lasting reflection in the Eastern cultures. Continuing the tradition established by our two highly successful conferences held in 2009 and 2011, we would like to invite scholars who conduct research into cultures, religions, and philosophies of the East (India, China, Japan, Tibet, Korea, and the Middle East), as well as those who are interested in the mutual influences between the East and the West.
