Conference: Philosophy as Translation

"Philosophy as Translation"

Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies

17-18 November 2014

In non-American contexts, what would “American philosophy” signify and what kind of role would it play? We are thinking first and foremost of those distinctive forms of philosophy that are found in transcendentalism and pragmatism. But how far are these necessarily American?

In response to these questions, this symposium will address the role of American philosophy in both American and non-American contexts through the dialogue among international scholars (including American, Asian and European scholars).

The conference takes place at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies in 17-18 November 2014. It is co-organized by Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, Kyoto University and the Nordic Pragmatism Network.
