Philosophical Anthropology in Ibn Sina

Call for Papers

Theme: Philosophical Anthropology in Ibn Sina
Type: International Conference
Institution: Iranian Institute of Philosophy (IRIP)
Location: Tehran (Iran)
Date: 26.–28.12.2021
Deadline: 22.7.2021

On December 26-28, 2021, the Iranian Institute of Philosophy (IRIP)
will host an international conference on Ibn Sina’s philosophical
anthropology. The goal of this conference is to gather Ibn Sina
researchers from all around the world to read and interpret Ibn
Sina's anthropological doctrines in light of his metaphysical,
physical, and psychological works.

Since Ibn Sina does not restrict the study of human nature to natural
sciences, the attempt to clarify his philosophical anthropology
deserves considerations beyond their limits. Some of the significant
resources in this regard are Ibn Sina's own books and monographs on
psychology, some of which are part of aš-Šifāʾ (The Cure), an-Najāt
(The Salvation), ʿUyūn al-ḥikma (Elements of Philosophy),
Dānešnāme-ye ʿAlāʾī (Philosophy for ʿAlāʾ-ad-Dawla) and al-Išārāt
wa-t-tanbīhāt (Pointers and Reminders), while some others are
contained in separate treatises. In addition to psychology, topics
like ethics, political philosophy, cosmology, philosophy of religion,
and philosophy of language are worth addressing in order to clarify
Ibn Sina's anthropology.

We are hopeful that this conference will be a significant
contribution to the contemporary studies of Ibn Sina and will throw
light on some understudied aspects of his thought.

Conference issues

2. Ethics

meantime, accepted abstracts will be notified and will be requested
to send their full paper before October 22, 2021.
