10th International Conference on Philosophical Practice

‘Experience in Philosophical Practice’

August 11 - August 14, 2010

For more information, or

The Dutch Association for Philosophical Practice ICPP(VFP) is proud to organize the 10th International Conference on Philosophical Practice. The aim of the conference is to deepen and improve our practice by sharing and discussing our experiences in philosophical practice.

We will not just to talk about philosophical practice, but will make the 10th ICPP a happening of philosophical practice itself in which we will learn from each other’s practices.

For registration see information at the bottom of this page.

Practices will be shown and discussed in workshops and seminars centered around three main areas:

Experience in philosophical counseling (‘Beratung’): this refers to the most common way philosophical practice is understood, as counseling with individual clients or small groups working on major life questions.

Philosophical practice in the public, institutional and business spheres: this refers to the growing field of philosophizing in political and governmental institutions, business environments, and civil communities working on questions of justice, emancipation, quality of life etc.

Philosophical practice in education: this refers to philosophical practice in schools, educational institutions working on moral, vocational, professional and intellectual education.

In these three area’s we wish to address three kinds of questions:

Experiences in philosophical practices. What kind of experiences are brought into your practice by the clients? What happens in the interaction between the clients and you, the practitioner?

Experience oriented working. What kind of experience do you, as a practitioner, want to create in your practice? And how do you work to realize this?

Reflection on experiences in philosophical practices. How can ‘experience’, in the context of philosophical practice, be considered ‘philosophical’? How do you justify your practice for the outcome of your interventions?

During the conference, the Dutch association VFP aims to initiate international cooperation on securing high level education of philosophical practitioners and certification of courses in this field.
