Exploring Moral Interfaces:
Private Worlds and Public Systems
An International Conference organized by The English and Foreign Languages University
7th to 9th October, 2015
"Everyone deserves a private life," says the female protagonist in the 1994 movie, Three Colors: Red by Krzysztof Kieślowski. The intrusive nature of the modern technologies that facilitate access—without consent or acknowledgement—to the private domains of people's lives further blurs the already hazy borderlines that separate the public from the private. The proposed conference will address some of the troubling issues relating to this phenomenon.

Philosophy and Poetry [Edited Volume]

Tuesday, April 14, 2015 - 3:11pm
Subashish Bhattacharjee & Saikat Guha [India]

Poetry has been a continuous presence in the realm of philosophy. While the conflation often engendered poetic synchronization to the epistemic and aesthetic concerns of philosophy the cross-currents also opened up interesting instances of dissent. The resultant proliferation of ideas gave impetus to 'other' readings of poetry parallel to its traditional nuance. This volume seeks scholarly and original essays that take into account philosophy's engagement with poetry that goes back to Plato and Aristotle, and is a continuing imperative in the philosophical paradigms of Kant, Hegel, Rousseau, Dilthey, Nietzsche, Jean-Luc Nancy, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, Bakhtin, Heidegger, Sartre, Blanchot, Derrida, Adorno, Agamben and others.
