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.
