Press statement for the Salzburg Conference for Young Analytic Philosophy - SOPhiA 2012

Timeframe and general information. From September 13th-15th 2012 the third Salzburg Conference for Young Analytic Philosophy (SOPhiA 2012) was held at the University of Salzburg's Department of Philosophy (Humanities). It was a public conference and attending it was free of charge. The official languages of the conference were German and English. The presentations were given by philosophy students (pre-doc). The conference was hosted by members of the University of Salzburg's Department of Philosophy (Humanities). For enquiries the hosts can be contacted via organization@sophia-conference.org.

Mission statement. Within the conference, problems of all areas of philosophy should be discussed. A thematical focus is not intended. The conference therefore has no specific theme. The presentations should rather set themselves apart by a methodical limitation to the tradition of Analytic Philosophy by usage of clear language and comprehensible arguments. "Presentations and papers in the tradition of Analytic Philosophy" is, as per definition of the conference hosts, understood as presentations and papers that are methodologically similar to presentations and papers of Bernard Bolzano, Gottlob Frege, Bertrand Russell, Rudolf Carnap, Karl R. Popper and other recognised analytic philosophers, or that show efforts of a similar approach. The conference is meant to be a unified effort of the conference attendees to clearly formulate some of the problems of philosophy and to provide a critical assesment of them. No individual is expected to construct "a whole building of philosophy" all by himself; rather, the conference hosts expect everyone, as Carnap proposes, to bring the undertaking forward "at his specific place within" philosophy.
