2nd Annual International Conference on Philosophy: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow (PYTT) 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The 2nd Annual Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Phi­los­o­phy – Yes­ter­day, Today and Tomor­row (PYTT) will held on Novem­ber 24 – 25, 2014 in Sin­ga­pore at the Hotel Fort Can­ning and is organ­ised by Global Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Forum (GSTF).

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    Phi­los­o­phy is the study of gen­eral and fun­da­men­tal prob­lems. It involves the ratio­nal inves­ti­ga­tion of the truths and prin­ci­ples of being, knowl­edge, or con­duct. In the aca­d­e­mic world, it is con­cerned with mak­ing explicit the nature and sig­nif­i­cance of ordi­nary and sci­en­tific beliefs and inves­ti­gat­ing the intel­li­gi­bil­ity of con­cepts by means of ratio­nal argu­ment con­cern­ing their pre­sup­po­si­tions, impli­ca­tions, and inter­re­la­tion­ships; in par­tic­u­lar, the ratio­nal inves­ti­ga­tion of the nature and struc­ture of real­ity (meta­physics), the resources and lim­its of knowl­edge (epis­te­mol­ogy), the prin­ci­ples and import of moral judg­ment (ethics), and the rela­tion­ship between lan­guage and real­ity (seman­tics).

    The Annual Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Phi­los­o­phy: Yes­ter­day, Today & Tomor­row (PYTT) aims to explore the dif­fer­ent con­cepts and sub­fields of Phi­los­o­phy and attempt to under­stand real­ity and answer fun­da­men­tal ques­tions about knowl­edge, life, moral­ity and human nature. Through shar­ing and net­work­ing, PYTT will pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties for researchers and edu­ca­tors to exchange infor­ma­tion answer ques­tions and dis­cuss the ratio­nal and log­i­cal truths of the world.
