Philosophy and Culture in Time of Pandemics
The conference focuses upon various ways of modeling miscellaneous philosophic problems trajected through the prism of social and cultural codes, as well as different obstacles in translation from ancient and modern languages; correction and development of the conceptual framework in the humanities. The interdisciplinary approach allows the conference to engage different sections of human sciences, particularly a history of literature and language, epistemology, hermeneutics, significant issues of socio-cultural communication etc.
The conference is dedicated to the processes in society, business and culture during the pandemic. Within the framework of this topic, we propose to discuss a variety of philosophical and ethical problems that arose in society during the pandemic, and which are reflected in philosophy, law, culture and media:
a) Identify the ethical dilemmas that have arisen in connection with the emergence of the coronavirus and discuss key philosophical approaches to understanding the pandemic;
b) Consider and critically comprehend the various moral foundations of economic, medical and legal ways to deal with the pandemic and its consequences;
c) Describe and analyze cultural shifts, trends and concepts that emerged during the global pandemic.
We are planning to discuss both new ethical challenges and classical philosophical problems in the context of the experience of “remote” life and the fight against the spread of COVID-19.
