XVth International Congres of Intercultural Philosophy

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Santiago de Chile, from 24 to 27 of April 2024

Cultures, world, civilization: between colonization and liberation - this was the theme of the XV International Congress of Intercultural Philosophy, which took place from 25-27 April 2024 in Santiago de Chile and was organized by the EIFI (Aachen/Barcelona) together with the Federico Santa María Technical University, Santiago de Chile, the State University of Santiago de Chile, the Catholic University of Temuco, and the Catholic University of the North.

Numerous philosophers from different countries came to Santiago de Chile to explore ways in which the current civilizational order, which threatens to destroy and replace the many places in the world of humanity, can be reversed and steered towards a solidary coexistence of humanity. The joint work was rounded off with a panel for retrospective critical evaluation.

Lorena Zuchel, who was responsible for the organizational team in Chile, provides an insight into this intercontinental exchange of experiences in her report, which will be published in the upcoming number 86 of Concordia. International Journal of Philosophy. Like all events in this series, this congress will also be documented in a conference volume, which will contain all presentations in full. The book will be available soon.

Theology of migration: Migrants are people too


In early February, a series of seminars on human values began in Barcelona at the International School of Intercultural Philosophy (EIFI). These take place at a special institution: the Casa d’Espiritualitat Sant Felip Neri. Central to the first seminar were the decolonisation of thought and the theology of migration.

Migration is of all times. Once upon a time, the first humanoids roamed from Africa across the European continent and the first human species - Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens - mixed with each other. As Euro-Asians, their descendants continued their way through the Bering Strait to the Americas, and so on.


Much later, other migrants went in search of other cultures. Marco Polo's parents and Marco Polo himself travelled through Mongolia to China and returned home in amazement. Somewhat later, Columbus undertook his journey across a still unknown sea and equally returned with many stories. However, his journey did not lead to an encounter with the Other but to an imperialist invasion of a hitherto unknown continent.


Thus, the year 1492 marks the beginning of the global exploitation of overseas territories and the subjugation of peoples. It led to a division between the West and the rest with all its inhumane consequences. Consequences of which we see the effects now more than ever: people with no livelihood opportunities seek their way to where a life can be built.

From the author's foreword


Whoever wants to know, if he wants to attain authentic knowledge, must be willing to go on the way with what he wants to know, learn to esteem it, found community with it, and be reborn into the world from the history of the commonly trodden path.


This is the kind of knowledge of solitude to which this book aims to contribute. The two chapters that comprise it respond to this intention.


In the first, so to speak, we meet thinkers who in the history of philosophy have travelled the path of solitude.

With the support of this exercise of historical memory on dealing with solitude, the second chapter analyses some fields of encounter and dealing with solitude as testing grounds for learning a good way of dealing with solitude, which is what the kind of knowledge of and with solitude that our reflections in this book aim at should lead to.

FROM OUR ACTIVITIES IN 2023

XX International Seminar of the North-South Dialogue Programme:

“New Forms of oppression and liberation today”.

In memoriam Franz J. Hinkelammert

From 2 to 4 November, the 20th International Seminar of the North-South Dialogue Programme took place in Barcelona. Its topic: "New forms of oppression and liberation today".

Numerous participants came to dialogue with speakers from different regions of the world - from Africa, America, Asia and Europe - on the state of humanity in today's world. The description of new forms of oppression and liberation was the starting point for an in-depth examination of the metamorphosis of these forms at the crossroads between oppression and liberation, and for asking the necessary question of where the strength can come from so that people can recognise the ethical urgency of following the path of liberation and also want to follow this path.


>> More on this in the conference report, which will be published in the issue 85 of Concordia. International Review of Philosophy, that is upcoming.


>> an advance notice: The acts of this 20th International Seminar of the North-South Dialogue Programme will be published soon. They will include all the papers in full text.
