 Invitation to an International Conference

Tradition and Inovation in the Global Dialogue of Cultures

 Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan                                      July 26-27, 2015


in cooperation with

International University of Kyrgyzstan


Conference Program



Globalization can be both positive and negative. Positively, it can unite the world into the humane civilization; negatively, it might disintegrate world by generating regional conflicts. According to Pitirim Sorokin, wars and revolutions in modern times were not so much about crises of economy, political systems, etc., rather about the "sensate culture", which dominates the consumer society and material values.


Martin Heidegger points out that the crisis of modern industrial civilization is the crisis of the subjective consciousness and subject-object thinking. It is the crisis of monocentric consciousness, and a soulless man with rational-technical thinking, who has lost touch with a divine-spiritual source of Being.


A fundamental solution of global crises such as socio-political, economic, ethnic and religious conflicts could be possibly based on the transformation of our consciousness, and through dialogue of philosophies. Therefore, it is necessary for different philosophical schools to think deeply the implication and implementation of dialogic heritages and experience of cultures and development of potential and practical dialogue.


The followings are subthemes to be considered for the conference:


1. Ontology of Philosophy Dialogue;

2. Dialogic Heritages and Experience of Cultures;

3. Western and Eastern philosophies: generalities and peculiarities;

4. Conditions, Foundations and Principles of Practical Dialogue.
