June 26 – 27, 2017 – Colloquium Care of the Self in Global Era – Institute of Philosophy & Institute o
f Political Science, University of Prešov
In modern thought, the rediscovered topic of the care of the self embraces a wide range of phenomena like identity formation, disc
iplinary techniques vs. practices of the self, question of individual life style, etc. An inquiry into the questions of care of the self from a perspective of philosophical anthropology and ethics proceeds from a general diagnosis of a state of crisis in contemporary culture (e.g. crisis of the individual concern for himself in contradiction with society’s demands).
The aim of the workshop is to draw connections between the issues thematised by the participants of the project and to expose philosophical problems to present global challenges. The workshop will address the following themes:
- The social preconditions of the care of the s
elf under contemporary conditions of globalization
- Individual preconditions of the care of the self in a Global/Modern Era
- Philosophical-therapeutical diagnoses and prescriptions.
- Care of the self in the history of philosophy and its concrete practices in various epochs and cultures
- Care of the self as a model of new ethics
