大西洋に浮かぶアゾレス諸島（ポルトガル領）のサンミゲル島ポンタ・デルガダにあるアゾレス大学で、2017年7月25日～28日に、第11回国際ホワイトヘッド学会(International Whitehead Conference)が開催されます。
テーマは Nature in Process: Novel Approaches to Science and Metaphysics です。
We are pleased to announce that the 11th International Whitehead Conference, under the topic Nature in Process: Novel Approaches to Science and Metaphysics; will take place between 25th-28th July 2017. The conference will take place in Ponta Delgada, on the Island of S. Miguel and be hosted by The University of the Azores. The Azorian natural beauty spontaneously invites this conference on Natural Science and Process Metaphysics creating the perfect setting for philosophical musing and discussion. Process philosophy is inseparable from Philosophy of Nature and Philosophy of Science. “Nature is a process.” Nature is also duration and passage. And in the passage of Nature we find the primary metaphysical facts. (This intrinsic character of nature cannot be explained away, because it is an insurmountable fact.) The following keynote speakers have confirmed their attendance: John B. Cobb, Jr., Manuel Carmo Ferreira, Yutaka Tanaka, Michel Weber.
