Roman Ingarden and His Times: An International Phenomenological Conference 2018

deadline for submissions: 
April 1, 2018
full name / name of organization: 
Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland

The 50th anniversary of the death of the eminent Polish philosopher and humanist Roman Ingarden in 2020 is an occasion to launch an international academic debate on his philosophical legacy. It is also an opportunity to share and celebrate the efforts of Jagiellonian University aimed at the study and archivisation of Ingarden’s hitherto unknown correspondence and research papers. These tasks are being carried out as part of the project entitled ‘The Roman Ingarden Digital Archive: Previously Unpublished Correspondence and Academic Papers of the Eminent Polish Humanist’, financed within the framework of the DIALOG programme, using funds provided by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Poland.

The conference dedicated to the philosophy of Roman Ingarden and his contemporaries will be held in 2018, marking the 80th anniversary of the deaths of two great teachers of the Polish phenomenologist: Edmund Husserl and Kazimierz Twardowski.

The conference will also present the results of the Ingarden Digital Archive project and, we hope, will launch further studies on Ingarden’s heritage, culminating in an international academic congress to be organised at Jagiellonian University in 2020. The organisers are also planning to publish selected papers in specially prepared thematic volumes of the journals Polish Journal of Philosophy and The Polish Journal of Aesthetics.
