Permanent Seminar

The IFILNOVA Permanent Seminar has as theme for the next five years "Values and Human Agency" and will seek to show how Values are relevant to Human (both social and individual). This Seminar is the 'place' where different research done at Labs level will converge towards a unified viewpoint. We mean by this not, of course, a single philosophical position, but an overall understanding of the following issues: what is the philosophical contribution to current affairs and decisions that depend crucially on values? Can Philosophy make a difference, namely by bringing Practical Reason to bear on these affairs and decision? And how to do it? Which are our scientific 'allies' in this enterprise psychology, communication sciences, even sociology and history?
