Cfp: "Ethics, Identity and Recognition," Latin American Conference on Paul Ricoeur’s Thought, Catholic University of Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil, November 28-30, 2011.

This Latin American Conference on Paul Ricoeur’s thought will take place at the Catholic University of Campinas (São Paulo, Brazil). It builds on the momentum created by the Conference that took place in Guadalajara last November. The main objective of this international meeting in Brazil is to invite the philosophical community to a renewed and innovative discussion around three of Ricoeur’s fundamental works: Time and Narrative, Oneself as Another, and The Course of Recognition. These three works converge on the basic question of the acting and suffering condition of the human being, which develops on the personal, interpersonal and institutional planes. This meeting intends to be a fruitful dialogue among professors and graduate students working on Ricoeur’s thought from multiple perspectives. Several national and international scholars will participate in the Congress and share their research with the Latin American community. Participants are invited to submit their abstracts according to the thematic presented above. Each submission will be evaluated through a blind reviewing process by specialists from the Conference’s Scientific Committee.
