Johan Huizinga's Homo Ludens: 75 Years Later (January 15-17 2014)
An Interdisciplinary Conference on Play as the grounding Structure of Reality

The end of this year will be marked by the 75th anniversary of Johan Huizinga's classic study of the Homo Ludens. Its main thesis is as striking as it is simple: Culture is founded on and as a form of play. Huizinga's historical, philosophical and anthropological aim was to understand play as a 'totality'. The element of play can be observed in all different aspects of culture, ranging from seemingly innocuous leisure activities to the uttermost serious and advanced systems, such as the financial world, political institutions, mass media and warfare.

15th Global Conference
Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness

Saturday 22nd March – Monday 24th March 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations
This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to examine and explore issues surrounding evil and human wickedness. In wrestling with evil(s) we are confronted with a multi-layered phenomenon which invites people from all disciplines, professions and vocations to come together in dialogue and wrestle with questions that cross the boundaries of the intellectual, the emotional and the personal. Underlying these efforts there is the sense that in grappling with evil we are in fact grappling with questions and issues of our own humanity.

To witness and be aware of the fullness of the impact of exceptional nursing…is a sacred emotional uplifting experience…This realisation permeates ones whole being, bringing peace, endless gratitude and the deepest respect. As a result one can become a better person, simply wanting to radiate the same love to all within one's reach.
