In fifteen colloquia, invited speakers will discuss topics of current concern in philosophical debate, which will illuminate different aspects of the conference topic “The true, the good, and the beautiful”. Each colloquium will consist of three thematically related talks and a subsequent Q&A session. In addition, there will be (as a new format) two “bridging-the-divide” colloquia, each being devoted to a central question from practical and theoretical philosophy, respectively, which divides different schools of thought and will be discussed by representatives of the different perspectives. These colloquia will consist of one “primary” talk, and two commentaries (of equal length), followed by subsequent discussion.
