The First International Congress on a Philosophy for Emancipation, Diversity, and the Life of the Planet and the Twenty-Second International Conference on An Alternative Political Science will be held in Havana, Cuba from November 19 to November 23, 2019.

 

The Congress and the Conference are sponsored by the Cuban Society of Philosophical Research, the Division of Philosophy, History, and Sociology of the University of Havana, and the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Environment of the Republic of Cuba.  They are being organized by Cuban and international professors affiliated with the Division of Philosophy, History, and Sociology of the University of Havana and with Dr. Thalía Fung, Head of the School of “Political Science from the South” of the University of Havana.  The “Political Science from the South” is a transdisciplinary initiative, including scholars in political science, economics, history, philosophy, anthropology, and sociology.  It seeks to develop an analysis of human history and political dynamics from the perspective of the global South, endeavoring to develop insights that are relevant to political strategies of the nations and social movements of the Third World.

 

The organizers of the Congress are interested in receiving philosophical reflections on science, technology, and the environment from specialists in various fields, including the natural sciences, the social sciences, philosophy, and the humanities.  They are interested in such themes as artificial intelligence, robotics, biotechnology, transhumanism, bioethics and the environment, among others.
