On the 26th and 27th of April 2007 the Dutch Philosophers’ Rally will be held in Groningen, the Netherlands. This event will take place at the Faculty of Philosophy, Oude Boteringestraat 52, Groningen.

The Philosophers’ Rally Groningen is an international two-day conference in which the fascination with philosophy in all its shapes and forms will be the central theme. The Rally strives to offer a stimulating environment, in which students, researchers and teachers in philosophy have the chance to present their research and ideas to other academic philosophers. The aim is to offer young, enthusiastic beginners and more experienced practitioners of philosophy the opportunity to meet and to discuss their work and particularly their fascination with their own philosophical subject. To give the Rally more depth, the lectures will feature not only speakers from the Groningen University, but from all Dutch Universities and even beyond. This international orientation entails that most lectures will be given in English.

The Rally will feature two plenary lectures by guest speakers on both days, lasting approximately one hour. In addition, there will be several parallel workshops sessions, which will last about 45 minutes each. Due to the fact that the emphasis lays on meeting potential colleagues and creating a dialogue between different approaches, there is no specific subject on which all speakers will focus. Instead, we ask our lecturers to give an engaging presentation which will invite audience interaction through questions and discussion. Participation is thus an integral part of the workshops, and will be stimulated as such through the open form of the workshops.

The organization of the Philosophers’ Rally is comprised of a group of enthusiastic students from the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Groningen. They are assisted by many other ‘inhabitants’ of the Faculty.
