Wiener Kolloquium Analytische Philosophie (WKAP) 2018/2019

WKAP is jointly organized by Max Kölbel, Herlinde Pauer-Studer und Hans-Bernhard Schmid

All sessions will be on Thursday from 16.45 to 18.45h

The Colloquium has two aims: It is meant to bring interesting contemporary philosophers to our Institute in Vienna so that they can present aspects of their work. It is also supposed to provide an opportunity for us and the invited philosophers to discuss the presented material in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, even if seriously and with controversy.

In each session, the invited philosopher will start by giving a 45-50 min talk. After a 5-minute break, the invited philosopher will respond to questions, comments and objections. We explicitly invite and ask all participants to contribute: no question is too dumb. After the talk the invited philosopher is taken out for dinner. Again, alle participants are invited to join. In our email announcements of the talks, we will also announce where we are planning to go for dinner, and we will ask those who want to join to let us know in advance, so that we can make a reservation.
