In order to mark 125 years from Justin Popović’s birth and 40 years from his repose, the Centre of Byzantine-Slavic Studies of the University of Niš, the Faculty of Orthodox Theology and the Institute of Philosophy and Social Theory of the University of Belgrade will organize, on 10th and 11th of May 2019 in Belgrade, the international conference “Thought and Mission of St Justin Popović”. As a monk, cleric and saint of the Orthodox Church, a professor at the University of Belgrade and the cofounder of the Serbian Philosophical Society, Justin Popović (1894-1979) is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest Orthodox theologians of the twentieth century. However, despite the unanimous recognition of Justin Popović’s intellectual and spiritual capacity, the assessment of his work is still a matter of dispute.
From 5-7 December 23, 2018, a network of researchers and practitioners from Belgrade, Graz, Sarajevo, Skopje, Turin and Zagreb gathered for a first in a series of workshops and a public event to mark the start of a three year-long research project “Promoting and Advancing Innovative Democratic Practices in the Western Balkans”, co-sponsored by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
We are pleased to announce that Philosophy and Society Journal’s fourth issue of volume XXIX has now been released. This issue has two special topic sections – “Extended Mind and Extended Cognition” and “Book Symposium on Luigi Caranti’s Kant's Political Legacy: Human Rights, Peace, Progress“. The new issue also features articles on Heidegger, Foucault, Celan, Hegel, recent social protests in Southeast and Eastern Europe, as well as reviews of recently published books in the fields of philosophy and social theory.
Marking the 100th anniversary of the creation of Yugoslavia, the Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory of the University of Belgrade, supported by the Belgrade Office of the Heinrich Böll Foundation and the Danas daily newspaper, is organizing a debate entitled "Yugoslavia: The First 100 Years". The history and duration of the Yugoslav state and society will be re-examined by relevant interlocutors from the former Yugoslav states. What does Yugoslavia represent in our societies today,, did it have to disappear, how do we remember Yugoslavia, and can it be an alternative?
What is the value of political engagement? Our aim is to present a premodern political tradition that might had been the most important precursor of the modern reflection on engagement, but also a current stream in political philosophy that puts the concept of engagement on center stage.
The main aim of this lecture is to explain what is joint perspective, how it is formed and why it is important for engagement. We pose the question of whether and in what way is an engagement of someone (or a group) before (or with) somebody else (or another group, which responds to the engagement by joining in it or continuing it) a plural agency (with the other) and what is the role of the other in the engagement.
Psychometric research has been using social network data in an increasing manner, during the last decade. Scientific findings about personality types can provide us with deep psychological insights about users of social networks. Those findings were used by Cambridge Analytica during the Brexit and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
