September 5-7, 2024


The Italian Society for Analytic Philosophy (SIFA) is delighted to announce that the Summer School “The Methodology and the Metaphilosophy of Analytic Philosophy, and the Teaching of Philosophy” will take place from September 5 to September 7 2024 at the University of Turin, Department of Philosophy and Education, formerly Convento Santa Monica, via Garibaldi 6, Savigliano (CN).


The Summer School aims to offer the opportunity to discuss some of the most recent philosophical trends in a lively interdisciplinary setting to selected Master and PhD students, as well as early-career researchers and secondary school philosophy teachers. The first day of the Summer School (in English) will be devoted to the nature and the method of analytic philosophy and its relationship with empirical sciences, primarily cognitive ones. Over the course of the second day (in Italian), the discussion will concentrate on whether teaching philosophy in secondary schools should follow historical approach, or, alternatively a theoretical approach in line with the argumentative character of contemporary analytic philosophy. The lovely setting of Southern Piedmont will provide an ideal backdrop for stimulating philosophical conversations, and a wealth of networking opportunities both within and outside the Summer School programme.
