30th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF PHILOSOPHY
THE ISLAND OF SAMOS – GREECE: 20-26 JULY 2018

THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF GREEK PHILOSOPHY (IAGP)
THE INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF GREEK PHILOSOPHY & CULTURE (ICGPC)
THE SOUTH AFRICAN SOCIETY FOR GREEK PHILOSOPHY AND THE HUMANITIES
In cooperation with other academic and cultural institutions and organisations
have decided to organise the:
30th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF PHILOSOPHY
on the topic:

POLIS, COSMOPOLIS AND GLOBALISATION

The Conference is under the Auspices of the President of the Hellenic Republic and will be held at the town of Pythagorion (the philosopher Pythagoras’s birth place) which is the Ancient City of Samos on the Greek island of Samos in the East Aegean, from 20th – 26th of July 2018.

In an age when there is a debate about the impact of globalisation, we think this topic would open up interesting researches, discussions and formulation of new ideas.

1. DESCRIPTION

1.1. Background
The Conference aims to bring together two main areas of research and investigation: the Hellenic philosophical heritage and modern philosophical trends grappling with the contemporary issue of globalisation. ..

1.2 Purpose of the Conference

Purpose of the Conference is not simply an historical investigation of the theme but the systematic philosophical treatment of social and political ideas in their various contemporary enactments (the polis, the nation-state, the union of nation-states, federalism in antiquity and in the present, the concept of global government) as well as the clarification of issues pertaining to the development of culture, i.e. the forms and the ways of life of ordinary people in their local and regional cultures…

1.3 Aims of the Conference

The Conference encompasses a number of issues (historical, classical, political, economic, philosophical, critical and practical, communicational, ecological) that lend themselves to discussions of several topics. These include but are not limited to the following:

A. The kinds of political entities and the forms and ways of life of the citizens in antiquity and now. The rights and duties of state and individual in the era of globalisation: Contemporary challenges and the perspective of classical Hellenic philosophy.
B. Economy, politics and competition in a free society and the quest for good life.
C. The quest for a good society and personal happiness (eudaimonia) in antiquity and in the present.
D. The philosophy of the polis: The citizen, the polis and cultural ideals; autonomy, freedom, equality, justice and the governing of the state; justice and law within and between city states, interstate justice; the common good virtue and normative ethics; the economic theory of life in the polis.
E. The philosophy of the cosmopolis: The philosophical schools that arose during the cosmopolis produced variegated visions of ways of life stretching from Cynicism’s extreme naturalism to the Stoic vision of a united humanity. Amongst the many reactions to the new reality was the Epicurean {«λάθε βιώσας»-lathe biôsas (live unnoticed)}, the Stoic’s life according to Nature, the sceptical doctrine of living according to a logos tini that would respect traditions and local customs – and many others….. Is political correctness a boon to diversity and cultural difference in the cosmopolis or is it a potential suppression to parrhesia’s critical role? And what of the political and ethical theories of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle? – are these important for understanding the challenges of globalisation or are they only applicable to the long-lost polis? Broadly speaking, we wish to provide a forum for discussing globalism as idea and reality by returning to one of the most challenging intellectual phases of recorded history, the phase between polis and cosmopolis, so that we may develop a deeper and sounder understanding of the transformations that the world is currently living through.

F. Scholars of Greek philosophy and paideia would find much to contribute on the matter from their reading of Hellenic ethical and political issues concerning the polis and the cosmopolis and contemporary philosophers would find much to contribute from their own work in contemporary ethical and political theory. So, all papers dealing with ethics, politics and economic theory of Greek culture and philosophy will be considered for inclusion in the Conference Programme.
