CFP – “Unity” between East and West – Kuwait, February 7-9, 2019


Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST) in Kuwait is organising an international philosophy conference titled: “Unity between East and West Organic Totality from Muhammad Abduh to Post- Structuralism.”

An organic concept of “unity” or “totality” has been expressed by philosophers at all times and in all geographical regions. Plato outlines a “supreme originating principle of Becoming and the Cosmos,” the Romantics see nature as the mirror of a human-centered cosmos, and post-structural philosophies produce concepts of play or the rhizome. Non-Western philosophies have addressed unity in the form of tawhid (Arab) or basho (Japanese).

Deadline for submission: October 15, 2018.

Please, find further information on the topic and on the details of application in the attached pdf.
