Amerykańska filozofia polityczna: zagrożenia demokracji

Amerykańska Filozofia Polityczna - zagrożenia demokracji (Plakat)

Zakład Filozofii Społecznej i Politycznej Uniwersytetu Wrocławskiego oraz Stowarzyszenie Badaczy Popkultury i Edukacji Popkulturowej “Trickster” mają zaszczyt zaprosić Państwa na drugą edycję konferencji Amerykańska filozofia polityczna:

“Amerykańska filozofia polityczna: zagrożenia demokracji”

Termin: 24-25.06.2016

Miejsce: CaféTHEA, Przejście Żelaźnicze 4, Wrocław

Tematem konferencji będzie namysł nad problemami zagrożeń i ograniczeń demokracji amerykańskiej. Uczestnicy konferencji przypomną odpowiedzi amerykańskich myślicieli na pytania jak skonstruować ustrój najbardziej demokratyczny (i cóż to oznacza “najbardziej demokratyczny”) i przed jakimi zagrożeniami należy Stany Zjednoczone zabezpieczyć. Analizowane będą diagnozy i przestrogi dotyczące amerykańskiego ustroju, a także takie zagadnienia jak: demokracja a prawo do głosowania; ograniczenia wolności w imię demokracji; obywatelskie nieposłuszeństwo i jego granice czy przyszłość demokracji amerykańskiej. Zwieńczeniem obrad będzie wydanie recenzowanego tomu pokonferencyjnego.

Konferencja jest objęta patronatem PTSA.
