Philosophy and Technology, 17-20 June 2019, Croatia

Technology permeates human life at individual, social and global level. It affects the way we communicate, travel, do business, take care of health, practice politics, fight crime, wage wars, conduct scientific research, raise children, create art, transmit culture, even the way we engage in personal or intimate relationships. Attitudes towards technology, however, are ambivalent: on the one hand, technology is perceived as something useful, progressive and beneficial; on the other hand, it is perceived as something potentially dangerous, alienating and dehumanizing. The aim of the summer school “Philosophy and Technology” is to explore this ambivalence through a number of courses addressing the meaning and implications of different technologies from the perspective of standard philosophical disciplines like metaphysics, logic, ethics, philosophy of science and history of philosophy.

INFORMATION

Timetable

To be announced. Approximately: two or three 90 minutes courses daily, plus student activities (to be specified in April).

Student activities

Depending on their interest in topics covered by courses offered, active participation of students is expected (e.g. seminar presentation) and will be indicated in the certificate of participation.

Participation fee

The participation fee for the school is € 50. It covers teaching materials, refreshments (coffee, tea and snacks), guided sightseeing of Zagreb, organized visit to the Technical Museum Nikola Tesla, official banquet and certificate of participation.

Practical information

The organizer does not cover travel and accommodation costs. There is a large number of hotels, hostels and private apartments in Zagreb and finding a moderatly priced accommodation should not be a problem. However, since June is a busy month in Zagreb, early booking is recommended.
Meals are not provided by the organizer, except for the official banquet on the last day of the school (to be organized in one of the centrally located Zagreb restaurants). Plenty of restaurants (including student-restaurants), pizzerias, snack-bars and bakeries can be found close to the Institute.

Venue

The summer school will take place at the Institute of Philosophy. Street address: Ulica grada Vukovara 54, 10000 Zagreb.

APPLICATION

The Summer School is intended for PhD students of philosophy. However, applications from graduate students of philosophy, as well as from students in other disciplines (e.g. medicine, physics or computer science) are also welcome.

In order to apply for the school, download and complete the official application form and email it to pts@ifzg.hr no later than February 18, 2019. Incomplete applications and applications received after the closing date will not be considered.
