The International Philosophical Congress will be held 22‒27 September 2020 at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland.

The fiftieth 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 current trends in contemporary philosophy. The main aim of the organisers is therefore to furnish an international group of researchers with a convenient space for a free and creative exchange of thoughts, ideas, and views.

We invite researchers interested in contemporary philosophy, cognitive science and gender/queer studies. 

The Thematic Panels will be organized within the following themes:

  • contemporary ontology
  • contemporary logic
  • contemporary epistemology
  • contemporary ethics
  • contemporary aesthetics
  • cognitive science
  • feminist philosophy
  • gender studies
  • queer studies
  • posthuman studies
  • the philosophy of Roman Ingarden
