CALL FOR PAPERS
for a Workshop on "Philosophy and Kafka" to be held at the 12th international conference of ISSEI (International Society for the Study of European Ideas) at Cankaya University, Ankara, Turkey on August 2-6, 2010. The theme of the conference is "Thought in Science and Fiction."
It is sometimes said that Franz Kafka's novels and stories defy philosophic extrapolation. Conversely, it has also been suggested that precisely the tendency of Kafka's writings to elude discursive solution is itself a philosophical tendency, one that is somehow contributing to a wiser relationship of human beings with language.
