International Congresses

for Intercultural Philosophy

 

This philosophical congress series, founded by Raúl Fornet-Betancourt and coordinated by him since the first congress in Mexico City in 1995, takes place every two years. The main objective is to transform philosophy in a dialogue with the cultural diversity of humanity and thus to lay the foundation for a fairer and more solidary coexistence in cultural diversity.

These congresses have so far taken place in various contextual locations in Latin America (Mexico City, 1995; São Leopoldo, Brazil, 1997; Buenos Aires, 2007; San José de Costa Rica, 2011; Santo Domingo, 2015), Asia (Bangalore, 2001; Seoul, 2009) and Europe (Aachen, 1999; Seville, 2003; Senftenberg, 2005; Vienna, 2013; Barcelona, 2018).

 

The most important topics of the congresses include: the cultures of philosophy, interaction and asymmetry of cultures in the context of globalization, concepts of being human and interculturality, universality and cultural justice.

 

The theme “Spirituality and Science” is the focus of the XIth and XIIth Congresses, which are documented in the following publications:

International Seminars

of the North-South Dialogue Program

 

 

Since the first seminar in 1989 in Freiburg i. Br. (Germany), the interdisciplinary seminars initiated and coordinated by Raúl Fornet-Betancourt are held every two years. In changing venues, intercultural exchange is constantly opening up to new contextual environments, by making them the focus of the debate on the great questions of humanity.

 

These seminars took place at different contextual locations in Latin America (Mexico, 1991, 2002 and 2014; Brazil 1993 and 2010; San Salvador, 1998), Asia (India, 2007) and Europe (Germany, 1989, 1992, 1995, 1996, 2000, 2005, 2011; Spain, 2004, 2008, 2013 and 2017).

 

Starting from a philosophical exchange between discourse ethics and liberation ethics or liberation philosophy, this dialogue program addresses social challenges from the 1980s onwards: Poverty, human rights, democracy in the cultures, globalisation, justice and solidarity, encounters between cultures of knowledge and wisdom.

 

“Spirituality and Society” is the central focus of the XVIIth and XVIIIth Seminars, which are documented in the following publications:

 

 

Raúl Fornet-Betancourt (ed.),

 

Knowledge, Justice and Spirituality.
