Gains and Challenges
Women's Worlds 2002
8th International Interdisciplinary Congress on Women
Department of Women and Gender Studies, Makerere University
21.–26.7.2002 — Kampala (Uganda)
The congress will provide an indispensable opportunity for critical reflection on the experiences and challenges of mainstreaming gender in the development process in several countries over the past decades. Further, it will facilitate deliberations on the most sound practices among the successful interventions or practical measures in addressing prevalent gender inequities especially on the African continent; and create momentum for a more concerted cross-disciplinary and multifaceted research, teaching and information gathering in relation to women and gender issues. Locating the congress in Uganda – in the heart of Africa – holds great potential for illuminating the voice from the south in general and of Africa in particular within the global women's movement.

Between Nationalism and Globalism
VIII International Conference
International Society for the Study of European Ideas (ISSEI)
22.–27.7.2002 — Aberystwyth, Wales (UK)
To deal with European Culture in a Changing World is to deal in fact with the reciprocal relation between Politics and Economics on one hand, and Culture on the other. In an era when economic forces are pushing towards European Economic Unity or towards the Globalization of National Markets it is rather difficult to demarcate the role of Culture.
On the one hand the postmodernist claim that the Grand Narrative is dead is given the lie. A Grand Narrative is now being written not by Philosophers but by Managers of Multinationals. On the other hand the Foucauldian "ça parle" (it speaks) is instantiated by the anonymous authors of the Global Narrative.
The question to be asked is: What will happen to the rich mosaic of National European Cultures? The answer to this question is not only a matter of National Memory and National Identity, it is also a matter of the sources of cultural creativity. L'Europe de nations may have been the theatre of endless national wars but it was also the cradle of the very rich mosaic of national cultures. The point is how will creative genius adapt to the two new trends – European Unification and Globalism.

Einsendung der Referate
XIX. Deutscher Kongress für Philosophie
Allgemeine Gesellschaft für Philosophie in Deutschland (AGPD)
23.–27.9.2002 — Bonn (Deutschland)
Am Beginn eines neuen Jahrhunderts und Jahrtausends stehen die Gesellschaften weltweit vor selbstinduzierten Risiken und Chancen zugleich: Dem Naturbegriff des Menschen nach sind Grenzen der Machbarkeit gefallen, die ebenso erschrecken wie hoffen lassen. Wenn Menschen sich ihrer Manipulierbarkeit ohne Grenzsicherung ausliefern, brechen Dämme. Das könnte katastrophale Folgen haben, die allerdings ebenso relevant für den Kulturbegriff des Menschen sind. Diesem Begriff zufolge sind Menschen nicht nur Mitglieder der biologischen Spezies homo sapiens, sondern ebenso und zuerst Träger des kulturellen Programms Mensch. Nur als Träger dieses Programms sind Menschen rechtsfähige Lebewesen. So muss von hier aus entschieden werden, wo die Grenzen der naturalen Selbstmanipulation des Menschen gezogen werden müssen. Der Kongress wird solchen Grenzthemen in vielen Feldern der Condition Humaine nachgehen. Dessen Grenzen sind ja nie nur Beschränkungen, sondern auch Bedingungen der Konturfähigkeit im Ausdrucksraum.

1. Grenzen und Grenzüberschreitungen in der Philosophie der Antike und Spätantike
2. Transzendentalphilosophie als limitative Theorie
3. Gebote und Verbote: Grenzen und Grenzüberschreitungen in moralischen Kontexten
4. Barrieren des Verstehens und Erklärens
5. Grenzen zwischen Glauben und Wissen: Religionsphilosophie
6. Grenzen als Thema in der Philosophie des Mittelalters
7. Rationalitätsschranken und Grenzen der Erkenntnis
8. Grenzen als Thema der politischen Philosophie
9. Philosophie des Geistes
10. Grenzen des Naturwissens
11. Grenzreflexionen in der frühen Neuzeit
12. Die philosophische Bedeutung limitativer Theorien in Logik und Metamathematik
13. Das Grenzproblem in der Philosophie der Kulturen
14. Entgrenzungsmuster in der Geschichtsphilosophie
15. Grenzen technischer Machbarkeit und Verfügbarkeit
16. Immanenz und Transzendenz: Ist Metaphysik als limitative Theorie möglich?
17. Ästhetik der Grenzen und Grenzüberschreitungen
18. Ausdrucksgrenzen: Theorien nicht-propositionaler Wissensformen
19. Renaissance der Phänomenologie?
20. Grenzen der Verantwortung: Bioethik
21. Philosophie und Ethik in der Schule
22. Editionen: Typen von Sacherläuterungen (Kommentaren)
