The 12th Central European Pragmatist Forum

"Pragmatism as Global Philosophy"

The 12th Central European Pragmatist Forum

The meeting will be held at the University of Vienna, 10 – 14 June 2024. The Forum was founded in 2000 to bring together scholars in pragmatism from North America and Central Europe. As founders John Ryder (former President of the Alliance of Universities for Democracy) and Emil Višňovský (Comenius University) have explained: “The idea was simply to enable communication and the mutual enhancement of one another’s thinking in the style of a ‘summer school’.” In 2024, about 30 participants, distributed evenly between Europeans and Americans, will gather to discuss their work. The theme of the meeting is “Pragmatism as Global Philosophy,” which is intended to support a wide range of related topics.

Participants in the Forum are by invitation only. All participants will give papers, and all sessions will be plenary.

The keynote speaker for 2024 will be Dr. Leonard Harris, Professor and Joyce and Edward E. Brewer Chair in Applied Ethics at Purdue University. Dr. Harris Editor of Philosophy Born of Struggle (1983) and three books on the philosopher Alain Locke. Harris is the author of “struggle philosophy,” an approach to philosophy that is different from the Socratic dialogue method, the ethics of insurrection, critical pragmatism, advocacy aesthetics and the concept of racism as “necro-being.” A graduate of Central State University, Ohio, and Cornel University, Harris is a professor of philosophy at Purdue University, Board member of the Philosophy Born of Struggle Association and the Alain L. Locke Society.

For the 2024 meeting, there will be two ways to register. One may register for six nights in the conference hotel, arriving on Sunday and leaving on Saturday. It is also possible for those who live closer to Vienna and who can travel to the venue on Monday morning to register for four nights, arriving on Monday and leaving Friday afternoon. The hotel will also make possible one or two nights before or after the conference in order to spend additional time in Vienna.

The fee for participants is 550 Euros for four nights or 750 Euros for six nights. The fee will cover accommodation at the conference hotel, most meals, and coffee breaks during the conference sessions. There will be an opening dinner and reception on Monday evening, lunches and dinners on Tuesday through Friday afternoon, and a farewell dinner.

Keep in mind that this is a week-long commitment. The purpose of the CEPF is to provide an opportunity for a sustained engagement with one another, so our participation is expected throughout the week, and all participants will stay in the same hotel. There will be roughly 30 participants, distributed evenly between Europeans and Americans. Papers presented at the Forum will also be considered for inclusion in special issues of Pragmatism Today, the Journal of the Central European Pragmatist Forum.
