The idea of freedom stands at the center of practical philosophy, embedded
in a thick web of relations with concepts such as subjectivity, rationality,
morality, and existence. It draws its force from the tension between two
roles: on the one hand as a fundamental metaphysical or anthropological
determination of human beings; on the other as designating a political ideal
that can more or less be realized or fail to be realized in concrete forms
of life. Rousseau's opening flourish in The Social Contract, "Man is born
free, yet everywhere he is in chains," underlines this tension. In this
sense the idea of freedom stands not only practically but also conceptually
under complex conditions, which need to be understood in order to grasp what
we really mean by "freedom."

The Fifteenth International Philosophy Colloquium Evian invites philosophers
to Lake Geneva to discuss issues concerning the conditions of freedom. It
aims especially to encourage its participants to transcend the narrow
confines of different traditions in philosophy. It is conceived particularly
as a place where the divide between continental and analytic philosophy is
overcome, or at least where their differences can be rendered
philosophically productive. The passive mastery of French, German, and
English (the three languages of discussion of the colloquium) is an
indispensable prerequisite for its participants.

Organisation: Georg W. Bertram (Berlin), Robin Celikates (Bremen), David
Lauer (Berlin); in cooperation with: Karin de Boer (Groningen), Karen
Feldman (Berkeley), Jo-Jo Koo (Pittsburgh), Christophe Laudou (Madrid),
Jérôme Lèbre (Paris), Diane Perpich (Clemson), Hans Bernhard Schmid (Basel),
Chris Doude van Troostvijk (Strasbourg/Amsterdam)
