ABC+ organizers are encouraging inclusive debate in the interests of concerted, high-quality, global and emancipatory philosophy. This event focuses on the ability of process philosophy to forge constructive links between today's philosophical currents, including Continental, Analytic, Marxist, Feminist, Eastern, Pragmatist and Environmentalist. We will also discuss future ABC+ work on other fields and topics.
