Winter School in Philosophy

December 30, 2008 – January 10, 2009

Organized By


Department of Humanities and Social Sciences


Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati


In Association With


Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla


Understanding the nature of Reality, Knowledge and Value


The two-week long WINTER SCHOOL IN PHILOSOPHY is conceived as an interactive workshop for young philosophy teachers and doctoral students, who will be instructed by a team of experts on how to deliver effectively introductory lectures in the classroom. Attention is to be drawn specially towards the role of being a teacher of philosophy inculcating philosophical knowledge to beginners in Philosophy.


A basic understanding of Philosophy as an intellectual discourse is an understanding of the principal problem of metaphysics, epistemology and value theory. The Winter School will consist of discussions on a chosen set of topics that relate to these three branches of Philosophy. This understanding, resulting out of the discussion is supposed to be uniform and well-integrated, so that a teacher of Philosophy is capable of rendering that understanding in a format which conduces to a systematic and coherent grasp of the subject.


Applications are invited from young college/university teachers, research scholars from philosophy and allied disciplines. Those interested may send their Bio-Data (that includes their academic qualifications, teaching experience, research interests and areas of specialization) along with a write-up of 300 words explaining their intention to participate in this programme.
