Until September 23, Segovia becomes the most important international forum of Phenomenology. The leading experts of this philosophical movement from more than one hundred associations and societies around the world gather today at the IE University campus in Segovia at the Fourth Congress of the Organization of Phenomenological Organizations (OPO IV).

Segovia will thus be the second city in Europe and fourth in the world, after Prague, Lima and Hong Kong, to host a global meeting on Phenomenology, a philosophical movement with more than one hundred years of history that explores the relationship between experiences – phenomena – and the context in which they are present- the consciousness.

According to Agustín Serrano de Haro, President of the Spanish Society of Phenomenology (SEFE), this conference is an intellectual and cultural event of high importance in Segovia as it is the largest concentration of Phenomenologists to have ever occurred in a Spanish city. Experts from the U.S., France, Australia, Russia, Mexico, Spain, Japan, China and India, will discuss the relationship between reason and life from the perspective of general thinking and Phenomenology in particular.

Speakers include Miguel García-Baró (Universidad Pontificia de Comillas, Madrid), Thomas Nenon (Center for Advanced Research in Phenomenology / University of Memphis, Memphis), Javier San Martín (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia, Madrid), Reiner Sepp (Charles University, Prague), Toru Tani (Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto), Roberto Walton (University of Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires).

The forum´s main theme is “Reason and life – responsibility of Philosophy”. It is organized by the Organization of Phenomenological Organizations (OPO) the Spanish Society of Phenomenology (SEFE), the Faculty of Philosophy at the UNED, the Institute of Philosophy (IFS-CCHS, CSIC), the Associate Center of the UNED in Segovia, IE University, the Center for Advanced Research in Phenomenology (CARP), Junta de Castilla y Leon and Banco Santander.
