2.1 Mind § Galaxy and the Origin of Philosophy
Speaker: Ion Soteropoulos
Independent Research Philosopher

How does the artist imagine and feel the dynamic connection of our Mind with the Universe?
The dynamic contact of our Mind with the Universe has its historical roots in the proto-rationalist idea of the first Indo –Iranian and Greek-Ionian thinkers 2600 years ago that everything (the universe) comes from the Mind and returns to the Mind. Our Mind is our ultimate certainty and infinite wealth.
Mind and Galaxy are significant magnetic poles of current philosophical and scientific research that capture the poetic imagination of the visionary artist.

2.2 In Saturn’s Rings

15. The 31st International Conference of Philosophy

12-15 July, 2019, Vouliagmeni (Athen’s Riviera), Amarilia Hotel, Greece 

The Possibility of Eudaimonia (Happiness and Human Flourishing) in the Word Today

We have selected this topic based primarily on two factors:

 Greek philosophy from its inception and throughout all phases of its development and transformations had as its guiding light the Socratic question: “How ought one to live one’s life?” (πῶς βιωτέον;). These reflections which occurred under radically different circumstances from the polis to the Hellenistic kingdoms, the Roman Imperium, Byzantium and beyond, provide a vast reservoir of wisdom for comprehending both the causes of human unhappiness and the possibilities for human flourishing and its attendant pleasures.

The present discussions of happiness, though they preoccupy a central place in the analyses of the human condition in our age of rapid technological advances, globalization, with its promises of material abundance and inexhaustible leisure, have generally reached an impasse. For the most part the popular theories proclaim adaptation to unexamined principles as the key to happiness; others point to neurological findings as a guide for social practices; others declare that practicing dogmas that would make us immune to the hazards of our times is the answer; and of course there are many variations to Huxley’s Brave New World that foresee manufactured happiness in drugs, sex, and living in the now of a crafted forgetfulness; and we cannot ignore the vast data-mining of human attitudes for the purpose of manipulating human actions towards fabricated and ever more transient caricatures of happiness.

We invite thinkers throughout the world to present and share their views and the fruits of their research on the topic of Eudaimonia – the possibilities for happiness, and human flourishing in our times – through the medium of Greek philosophy and its multifaceted heritage.

1. The Invisible Universe 2009

June 29 – July 10, UNESCO, Paris

Organizer: Laboratoire Univers et Théorie, Observatoire de Paris, CNRS

Cosmology has arrived at a crossroads. According to the best data available, from large ground based telescopes and space observatories: almost 95% of the universe  irretrievably escape observational detection. This missing part of the cosmos is constituted for 25% by a mysterious form of dark matter and 70%, by a dark energy whose nature is even more exotic and unknown! But what are exactly these new physical entities? In an attempt to answer this complex and profound question: more than 400 experts will gather in Paris to evaluate the situation, and draw future perspectives. The basic principles of physics appear sometimes to be put into question. Modern cosmology is perhaps at the beginnings of a major renewal, similar to those once made by Galileo and Einstein
