This philosophical congress series, founded by Raúl Fornet-Betancourt takes place every two years; it has been coordinated in Mexico City since the very first congress in 1995. The main objective is to transform philosophy in a dialogue with the cultural diversity of humanity and thus to lay the foundation for a more just and more solidary coexistence in cultural diversity.
These congresses have been held 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 globalisation, concepts of humanity and interculturality, universality and cultural justice.
Various seminars will be held in Barcelona during the course of the year to conceptually clarify and deepen the focus areas of the EIFI.
The first seminar took place on 3rd March 2018. This seminar, led by Prof. Agostín Andreu, Valencia, dealt with the concept of spirit or spirituality in European thought.
A second seminar followed on 2nd July 2018 examined the relationship between society and nature under the guidance of Jesús Vicens, coordinator of EIFI’s focus area “SOCIETY”.
Seminar on the topic:
“Philosophy and Wisdom”
1st Dicember 2018
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 cultures, globalisation, justice and solidarity, encounter between cultures of knowledge and cultures of wisdom.
