Part One: From the Bulletin

This new project of online seminars has arisen from the preparation of the 2020 Bulletin issue https://www.epf-fep.eu/eng/bulletin/74.

Scientific Seminars Part One will include dialogues between authors whose previously published papers and their new reflections on those writings has been published as a collection in Bulletin 74. The texts have been chosen according to their connection with the current moment and the times we are living in.

Three seminars are planned to be streamed by March 2021, which will be followed by Seminars Part Two, also from the EPF scientific life and work.

Only for the IPA members and candidates, free of charge.
