The 6th European Conference on Ethics, Religion & Philosophy (ECERP2019)

Du 5 juillet 2019 au 6 juillet 2019
The Jurys Inn Brighton Waterfront, Brighton, UK

Conference Theme: "Value and Values"

The conference theme, Value and Values, refers to two of the fundamental questions of human enquiry – why and how we do what we do. Focussing on them takes us back to the basics of academic enquiry. The focus on the Value of our area of study invokes questions of why our field is important for us, for society, for humanity; asking us to consider why we research, teach, and engage with other research and researchers in our area; and what the benefit of our work might be, to ourselves, to society, to the world.

Focusing on values, on the other hand, addresses our deeply held beliefs and integrity, and suggests our intentions, how we approach our work, and demands that the process of our enquiry be as important as the product. Our core values may be universal, but are coloured by our social, cultural, religious, political and personal contexts.

How can the study of ethics, religion and philosophy, as well as those of psychology and the behavioral sciences, inform each other, inform other fields, and inform our lives, from the way we lead our individual lives, to the ways in which governments engage with their citizens, and with those from other countries and regions?

In a world which is seeing a rise in authoritarianism, nationalism, and populism, this conference asks us to consider “value and values”, inviting scholars from around the world to come together and engage in challenging, rigorous debate across the lines and borders of religion, creed and nation, and we warmly encourage you to come to Brighton in 2019!

ECERP2019 will be held alongside The European Conference on Psychology & the Behavioral Sciences 2019 (ECP2019). Registration for either conference will allow delegates to attend sessions in the other.
