Announcement: New Keynote speaker Ignaas Devisch

Restlessness: Plea for an immeasurable life. Have we lost the ability to do nothing in our modern society? Do we become restless during our attempts to lead a balanced life, or could restlessness be used to drive us forward? Ignaas Devisch, Professor in Philosophy, Medical Philosophy and Ethics will share a  historical and philosophical view on our relationship with time, balance and boredom in daily life.

“Philosophy in my view is dancing on the skin of time: standing still in the stream of events of where we are part. We can understand our time better by looking back.”

Make sure you submit your abstracts on time in order to attend this interesting keynote and the other interesting opportunities of the conference. We would like to officially announce that the abstract deadline has been extended! Deadline for abstracts is now January 20, 2019 at midnight!
