IASC Newsletter | June 2015



Dear IASC Members,
The International Conference "Paradoxes of Conflicts" was a real success for our Association. Many ideas, many exchanges.
You can watch the official photo gallery (Roberto Greco ph.) and interviews (Alvarez-Barilan-Luiz-Amel-VuolantoPierri-Palese-Mannarini-Avanzini-SignorePanarello-Cattani-Lucrezi-Drago-Barrotta, Gruenpeter) to some of our speakers and participants.
We are now preparing the volume. It will be published by Springer in the Spring 2016. The authors are already working to write their essays. An International Committee, headed by Marcelo Dascal, will provide the final decision about the publication of each presented paper. 
As member of the FISP, IASC is able to anticipate some information about the next 24th World Congress of Philosophy.




Beijing (China), August 13-20, 2018.
