Within the framework of the XII. International Congress of Intercultural Philosophy, on the initiative of Raúl Fornet-Betancourt, an International School of Intercultural Philosophy ("EIFI - Escuela Internacional de Filosofía Intercultural") was founded, with its seat in the Casa d'Espiritualitat Sant Felip Neri, Barcelona.
The board of directors includes: Berta Meneses (Casa d'Espiritualitat Sant Felip Neri), Ángels Canadell (Asociación Filosofía de la Tierra), Jesús Vicens (University of Barcelona) and Raúl Fornet-Betancourt (University of Aachen).
Since its inception, EIFI has counted on the support of professors, of various scientific disciplines, from more than 70 universities, from Nazanz (Japan) to Harward (USA) and from Moscow (Russia) to Buenos Aires (Argentina) to Abidjan (Ivory Coast). Some of them belong to the Scientific Advisory Board, whose function is to advise and accompany the work of the EIFI.
FOCAL POINTS AND ACTIVITIES
EIFI develops its work around three fundamental foci: "Philosophy, Spirituality, Society", with the concern to promote intercultural philosophy as a platform for integral cognition, including the language of the senses, intuition and love.
As part of its work, EIFI regularly organizes courses, seminars and classes open to all interested parties. EIFI's activities are conducted in different languages, depending on the origin of the lecturers, and can be certified for scientific recognition upon request of the participants.
In addition to courses and seminars, the EIFI offers scientific advice and guidance for research work. In doing so, it is supported by the collaboration of an interdisciplinary team composed of the responsible members of the three thematic foci mentioned above. To promote this work, the EIFI makes a specialized library available to interested parties.
EIFI-SERIES OF DIALOGUES
EIFI sees itself as a "school community" for plural living together in a common world. It is open to all who share its goals and want to contribute to their realization.
