International symposium “Time: Different Perspectives”

Category: Events, I.3.5

Centre for Research on Culture, Language, and Mind is organising an international symposium “Time: Different Perspectives”.

The symposium will examine the theme of time – one of the most intriguing categories of human life – from the perspectives of the many disciplines that have studied it. Participants will provide insights from the perspectives of philosophy (phenomenology), psychology, the arts (photography and music) but also from astronomy, mathematics and physics.

We invite you on 25-26 June, 2024 at Faculty of Political Science and International Studies, auditorium building (Gmach Audytoryjny), room 308, ul. Krakowskie Przedmieście 26/28, 00-927 Warszawa.
