16th International Meeting on Pragmatism
The Center for Pragmatism Studies (CPS) of PUC-SP, is now calling for submissions of abstracts for the 16th International Meeting on Pragmatism, to be held at the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo, SP, Brazil, 9-12 November 2015.
The International Meetings on Pragmatism have been over the years regarded as one of the most important international references for researches, debates and dissemination of papers on the philosophical school known as Pragmatism, with emphasis on Classical Pragmatism that emerged in the United States in the 19th Century, but not losing sight of contemporary approaches to it. The Meetings have also fostered a prolific dialogue with the History of Philosophy in the fields of metaphysics, epistemology, logic, philosophy of language and semiotics, ethics and aesthetics.
The 16th International Meeting on Pragmatism will host lectures given by world-renowned researchers, invited to the event. The communications sessions will have approximately 30 selected communications. In a strict sense, the event aims at philosophy professors and graduate students in philosophy; in a wider sense, at professors and graduate students in related fields, as well as undergraduate students of philosophy and humanities.
