Philosophical Practice at the World Congress



Athens, Greece  4 – 10 August 2013
Invitation to participate in the 12th ICPP in Athens

The 12th ICPP will take place in Athens, in conjunction with the 23rd World Congress of Philosophy. The World Congress of Philosophy is organized every five years by the International Federation of Philosophical Societies (FISP) in collaboration with one of its member societies.

We invite philosophical practitioners to contribute Papers and Workshops for this important meeting of world cultures and philosophers in Athens.

The procedure for interested philosophical practitioners is as follows:

Register for participation at the World Congress of Philosophy in Athens by October 1st 2012 (for the early registration fee of 200 Euros). Please follow the website guidelines on how to submit your participation form to the Congress.

  1. Send the proposals for Papers or Workshops (maximum duration for each is 45 minutes for reading or activity, plus discussion of further 10-15 min) to Dr Constantinos Athanasopoulos ; he will organise the Round Table discussions and Workshops (as outlined below) with the Congress organisers, and ascertain whether additional days will need to be organised after the Congress. (Please note that we will try to accommodate as many workshops as possible and that there will be plenty of opportunity for informal and formal ICPP discussions; if we have more than 16 papers and workshops proposals a selection process will be determined by the Organisation Committee appointed at the XI-ICPP in South Korea).

Round Tables
We propose the following four Round Table Discussions (an ICPP Round Table may contain up to four different Workshops grouped together in the basis of a common theme or a related application of a practice) for the discussion of the papers and Workshops:
 

  1. 12th ICPP: Philosophical Practice – Principles and Aims
  2. 12th ICPP: Philosophical Practice – Tools and Methods [including Workshops, if we have more than 4 Workshop proposals]
  3. 12th ICPP: Philosophical Practice – Masterclass Workshops [up to 4 Workshops can be accommodated here]
  4. 12th ICPP: Philosophical Practice – Regional Developments and the Future (in which colleagues from Asia, Americas, Europe, Australia etc. may present their work; additional workshops may also be accommodated).

We will try to secure these four Round Tables within the Athens WCP. There will be additional opportunities for further ICPP activities and space to conduct formal and informal ICPP business (e.g. organising the next ICPP Conference).

Background to the 12th ICPP
At a plenary session of the 11th ICPP, with one vote allocated per participating country, it was decided by a vote of 19-4 that the 12th ICPP will be organized by Costas Athanasopoulos, in Athens, Greece, in 2013, in conjunction with the World Congress of Philosophy. An advisory committee was unanimously elected to assist the 12th ICPP organizer. Its members are Guido Giacomo, Leon de Haas, Lou Marinoff, Young E. Rhee, Carmen Zavala.

Conference fee
For participation in the 12th ICPP, there will be no supplementary fees beyond the standard fee for the World Congress. If we need to accommodate large numbers of participants in ICPP-designated spaces outside the current Athens WCP arrangements, then we will communicate further instructions at the time of the Conference.
Accommodation

Accommodation costs will be announced by the World Congress organisers, or ICPP members can arrange for their own accommodation via personal bookings with Athens Hotels and camping sites.

The Peruvian Society of Philosophical Counseling and Philosophical Practice (SOPECPRAFIL) has the following goals:

Promoting Philosophical Counseling and Philosophical Practice in Peru through the organization, promotion and  support of publications, conferences, workshops  and other events in the planning, execution as well as in all kinds of related research with theoretical-scientific purposes in the following way:
 
1. Creating, based on philosophical counseling, the appropriate conditions to provide humane and effective help to people with concrete questions and vital problems, respecting and supporting philosophical counselees as autonomous and responsible human beings. Philosophical counseling can be requested by individuals, groups or institutions.
2. Organizing events open to the general public (lectures, debates, conventions) dealing with global problems of public life and current vital problems, as far as they challenge philosophical theories and practice and as far as they put emphasis in clarifying and in suggesting possible solutions to the problems of sense in the contemporary world and in its orientation.
3. Appointing researches appropriated to foment the development of  philosophical practice in the sphere of Philosophical Counseling, Philosophy with Children and Philosophical Cafés.
4. Promoting Philosophical counseling in its practical execution and in its theoretical development.
5. Offering training courses to develop philosophical counseling according to international established standards.
6. Accomplishing and encouraging updating courses and workshops to support and promote philosophical counselors in their activity to benefit the people and institutions who request philosophical counseling according to international established standards. 
7. Establishing a continuous interchange of experiences between philosophical counselors, including on an international level. Promoting the spreading and interchange of experiences about philosophical practice in Peru and in the world.
8.

Starting a cooperation of mutual support in society with other counseling institutions, universities, schools and other educational or philosophical institutions. SOPECPRAFIL considers that it is its duty, in cooperation with philosophical academic institutions, to establish the frame and necessary conditions to reformulate and innovate the ways of teaching philosophy at universities, that should provide university students of Philosophy, from the very beginning,  the necessary tools to face the challenges in the professional life as philosophical practitioners.
