Doctoral Colloquium in Practical Philosophy


The Doctoral Colloquium in Practical Philosophy is a series of lively meetings in which doctoral students (and sometimes other philosophers, too) present their ideas, outlines, papers, draft chapters and discuss them with the other participants.

Typically, participants include: from our department, the doctoral students, the professors of practical philosophy, and some other academic staff; and from other cities, doctoral students and other philosophers who are invited for the occasion.

Once or twice per term the Colloquium meets for an entire day or week-end, with several papers in a row. The conference-like setting creates a great working atmosphere and cuts down travel for those participants who do not reside in Saarbruecken.
