American and European Values were a series of ten conferences on contemporary philosophy that were held annually since 2004 at the Institute of Philosophy of Opole University, Poland (detailed history of the events here). The main creators of the whole idea were professor John Lachs, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, USA and dr. Chris Skowronski, Opole University, Opole, Poland.
In 2015 the conference series is being extended into a Berlin edition. Berlin Practical Philosophy International Forum e.V. is proud to organize the event: John Lachs’s Practical Philosophy Conference, August 11-13, 2015.
The question whether there is a place for philosophers nowadays and how much influence they exercise in our everyday life seems as valid as it was 25 centuries ago in the time of Socrates. It will be also the leitmotif of the conference devoted to the practical philosophy of John Lachs (presently leading American pragmatist), during which academic world meets everyday life. If you want to listen to philosophical debate about values, the art of acting ethically, relativism, the state of being in love with life or you just wish to challenge your theoretical mind, it is the place to be.
