International Congress: Transcendence and Love for a New Global Society
Krakow, Poland, August 1-2, 2016)

The International Association for Philosophical Anthropology and the Leonardo Polo Institute of Philosophy (USA) with the collaboration of the Center of the Thought of John Paul II (Poland) and the Cardinal Stefan Wyzsynski University (Poland) presents the International Congress Transcendence and Love for a New Global Society.

The Congress will take place in English, and seeks to gather English speaking scholars from throughout the world to explore the implications of Philosophical Anthropology and Ethics in the varied fields of Human Action, Culture, and History. Among many philosphers who have approached the problem of Love and Transcendence such as Plato, Augustine, Aquinas, Scheler, Mauss, von Hildebrand, Arendt, Derrida, Ricoeur, etc., we propose to focus on the anthropological discoveries of John Paul II and Leonardo Polo which are very relevant to the challenge of proposing a ‘logic of gift’ and building a ‘culture of love’ open to Transcendence.International Congress
