Announce an international conference on

Values of the human person. Contemporary challenges

Bucharest, June 3-4, 2011

Times of changes provide special opportunities to discuss on important philosophical issues. The aim of this conference is to focus attention on the values of the human person considered under the paradigmatic changes of the contemporary process of globalization. Paradoxically, continuous qualitative increase and diversification of knowledge cause more and more fragmentation in the human being’s understanding of himself/herself and his/her own cultural and social environment which threatens human civilization in new ways. Within this perspective we identify new challenges addressed to the present role of the  humanities, knowledge and culture, arts, natural sciences, sociology which entail a diagnosis of classical, modern and postmodern models of theoretical, scientific, political and artistic thinking related to the problems of the main values of the human being.
