Graduate Conference on these topic areas: Philosophy, Anthropology, Geography.
Doctoral School in Philosophy and Human Sciences. 4th-5th May, 2017, University of Milan.
The notions of Nature and Culture may appear as essentially independent the one from the other for their literal definition. Indeed, it is considered one of the traditional dichotomies in Western thought: Nature seems to be an extrinsic dimension of Culture due to the absence of artificiality and development, which seems rather to belong to the latter.
Nevertheless, there have been important philosophical and scientific considerations that have structurally based their theoretical proposition on the close relationship, often dialectical, between the endless change of Nature and the becoming of Culture.
Consequently, the goal of the conference will be to provide an interdisciplinary debate through specific cases studies in the panorama of Human Sciences. Every session will be introduced by a remarkable keynote speech assessing a theoretical framework necessary for a broader contextualization of every case study.
Authors are invited to produce contributions on this topic particularly addressed to one of the following sessions. Deadline for the extended abstract submission: February 17th, 2017.
