CEE Fellowships, Roger Scruton Philosophy Symposium
The Humane Philosophy Project is pleased to invite applications from students enrolled on degrees in Central and Eastern European higher education institutions, for fellowships at the 2021 Roger Scruton Philosophy Symposium, to take place 28 July 28 - 6 August at the Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester.
These Fellowships are part of the New Generations Research Exchange organised by the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion, University of Oxford in collaboration with the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Warsaw, the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Zagreb and the Humane Philosophy Project with generous support from the John Templeton Foundation.
The Roger Scruton Philosophy Symposium offers a ten-day immersion experience in the philosophy and outlook of Sir Roger Scruton, the British writer and philosopher. Sir Roger Scruton was deeply involved in underground education in CEE behind the iron curtain, and his works continue to be an important voice in the discussions concerning many of the key issues the region faces in the post-communist era. The Fellowships represent and opportunity to engage with Scruton’s intellectual legacy, as well as preserve and develop the networks and relationships that he passionately promoted. Each full day will begin with a talk followed by a discussion. In the evenings attendees will participate in concerts, readings, or further discussion over wine. Topics covered in the sessions will include the nature of philosophy, why beauty matters, freedom and oppression, God and the natural world, why music matters, home and belonging, the fading of tradition, and understanding wine.
