Our school valorises the unavoidable pursuit of ontology, foregrounding the debate on this classical philosophical question.

The 2016 edition will offer a cutting edge, high-quality programme, thanks to the participation of some of the leading contemporary philosophers: Francesco Berto, Félix Duque, Adrian Jonhston, François Laruelle, Claude Romano, and Alenka Zupančič.

Racism and Discrimination in the Sporting World
An interdisciplinary volume to be edited by:
Professor of French and Fulbright Scholar
Eileen M. Angelini, Ph.D.
Canisius College

What is it about culture and society that creates an environment in which an athlete is able to excel or fail in his/her respective sport? Which factors, such as racism, discrimination, financial advantage or hardship, propel or hinder an athlete's achievements? This volume seeks to explore how the world of sports is often a microcosm of the real world and the many ways in which it uniquely reflects cultural and societal issues. Abstracts are welcomed from all disciplines.
