Corona Phenomenon and Political & Philosophical Questions

28 July 2020 | 13:34 Code : 19625 Events

Dear Scholars,

The “Corona Phenomenon" has forcefully revealed the need for sharing reflections in confronting pervasive phenomena and crises more than ever. It seems that the time has come for the international academic society to contemplate the dimensions and complexities of such crises in a more synergistic way and be more prepared to deal with similar events in the future. This requires much more attention and effort on the side of the academics and scholars to, not only attempt to answer the existing questions, but also partake in the practice of formulating new and more adequate questions in the face of our common global problems. So, as a first and small step, I have embarked upon such a practice and formulated 60 philosophical and political questions with regard to the Covid-19 crisis. Now we would like to invite our colleagues to join us and, based on their specialty and interests, engage with one or more of the questions as they see fit. The received answers will be collected in a book.Interested scholars are requested to contact us to receive the specific invitation- according to their field of studies.

With best regards,

Prof. Pegah Mosleh
