Próximo Congreso Internacional de Filosofía en Atenas 4-10 agosto 2013

XXIII World Congress of Philosophy

 

The World Congresses of Philosophy are organized every five years by the International Federation of Philosophical Societies in collaboration with one of its member societies. The xxiii World Congress of Philosophy will be held from August 4 through August 10, 2013, in Athens, Greece, under the auspices of the Hellenic Organizing Committee, which has been constituted by the Greek Philosophical Society.

The Congress has several aims, which are to be understood as complementary:

To inquire into the world’s philosophical traditions and compare them in terms of their diverse contributions and possible mutual cross-fertilization.

To reflect on the tasks and functions of philosophy in the contemporary world, taking account of the contributions, expectations, and gaps in philosophical awareness associated with other disciplines, with political, religious, social, economic, technological, etc., activities and with diverse cultures and traditions.

To emphasize the importance of philosophical reflection for public discourse on global issues affecting humanity.

Because of its cultural history and geographical situation, Athens is an ideal location for stimulating encounters between scholars from across the world. The main theme of the 2013 Congress, ‘Philosophy as Inquiry and Way of Life’, emphasizing both theory and practice, recalls the declaration of Socrates that the unexamined life is not worth living.

The 2013 Congress invites discussion of the nature, roles, and responsibilities of philosophy and philosophers today. It is committed to paying heed to the problems, conflicts, inequalities, and injustices connected with the development of a planetary civilization that is at once multicultural and techno-scientific.

The main theme of the Congress will be developed, according to the tradition of the World Congresses, in the following four plenary sessions and seven symposia:

La Asociación Mexicana de Estudios en Estética A. C. convoca a todos los interesados en el estudio y formación de la imagen visual a participar en nuestro Tercer Coloquio Nacional de Estética dedicado en esta versión a la formación de las imágenes no solo visuales sino acústicas, verbales y corporales como clave para comprender los fundamentos en la construcción de representaciones de la vida contemporánea. La estética de la imagen se gesta y se transforma en distintos contextos y actividades sociales, relatos históricos, anécdotas y vida cotidiana, en historias de género, étnicas y en las distintas clases sociales que la generan y cultivan y a la vez son determinadas por ellas. El rango de la imagen se expresa tanto en las estéticas cinematográficas, dancísticas, imágenes corporativas, arquitectónicas, teatrales y urbanas. Tienen sus ritmos en lo festivo y en lo laboral, en lo erótico y en la enfermedad e incluso en la delincuencia. Las estéticas de la marginalidad en las distintas bandas urbanas, imágenes pornográficas o a través de la moda son temas a explorar en este coloquio.

El Coloquio busca analizar tales estéticas en imágenes artísticas y en estilos de vida, tradiciones de celebración popular, imágenes de la muerte y de la vida, imaginarios del cuerpo perfecto, y del cuerpo imperfecto y deformado, imágenes de la enfermedad y la patología, desde metodologías multidisciplinarias como la semiótica, la filosofía del arte, la psicología de la imaginación, la iconología, la iconografía, la historiografía del arte y la epistemología. Pretendemos considerar el impacto estético de las imágenes realizadas por tecnologías digitales y medios de comunicación actuales en la configuración de representaciones sociales y personales, así como en movimientos políticos y de expresión humana, las cuales adquieren distintos matices y cadencias por los impulsos que las motivan. Exploraremos esta dimensión estética en los imaginarios utópicos, idealidad y realidad, modelos de construcción social, urbana, de economías y modelos de sociedad, imágenes de la riqueza y de la miseria, imágenes de la verosimilitud y de lo absurdo, de lo posible y de lo imposible, modelos e imágenes aspiracionales, proselitistas, evangelizadoras, y redentoras. Se trata de examinar asimismo los mecanismos estéticos en el capitalismo y el socialismo, de la ilustración, de las identidades y alteridades, de conflictos a través de sus imaginarios.

Las preguntas rectoras de este Coloquio son las siguientes: ¿Qué tipo de estéticas guían el proceso de construcción de la realidad día a día? ¿Se puede crear imágenes de la nada o se crea siempre de una imagen previa? ¿Qué imágenes tienen la fuerza estética para destruir o construir imaginarios, cuáles para transformar la realidad? ¿La seducción estética de imágenes puede ayudar a generar horizontes de vida, a la conducción de los pueblos hacia un porvenir en utopías de lo concreto? ¿De que manera las imágenes inventan lo real desde mecanismos estéticos? ¿Cómo se colonizan y descolonizan los imaginarios? ¿Cuáles son las inercias todos los de las imágenes? ¿Cómo funcionan los procesos de la imaginación, sus formas de generar figuras, relatos, espacios y ficciones? ¿De qué manera se ejercen estrategias estéticas en la configuración de narrativas políticas, reportajes periodísticos y simulacros ideológicos y sus imaginarios? ¿Cuál es la contribución de las estéticas en la construcción de ciudadanías a partir del consumo de imágenes o ficciones audiovisuales?
