The Conference is mainly directed towards young academics, and aims at being an occasion for them to encounter and deepen their understanding of Leonardo Polo's thought, especially aspects of his philosophy that concern his ethics and philosophical anthropology. The main focus is to show how Polo's philosophy provides an important philosophical framework for understanding how the different dimensions of human action and the various disciplines that are studied at the university (architecture, engineering, medicine, law, political theory, business, biology, psychology, education, leadership, ecology, etc.) are related with each other and with culture, history, and society.
The Conference centers on notions developed by Polo in works that focus on ethics and philosophical anthropology. Among these are his books Ã‰tica, Ayudar a crecer, FilosofÃa y economÃa, Â¿QuiÃ©n es el hombre?, as well as articles such as "El profesor universitario" and "La amistad en AristÃ³teles".
