The Seventh World Conference on Metaphysics will be held at the Pontifical University of Salamanca, Spain, October 24-27, 2018.

This event which has taken place every three years since 2000, provides a forum for contemporary reflection on grounding the major spheres of thought and action and is open to varied disciplines.

Clearly, philosophers play a key role in assessing and critically analyzing this endeavor, but all fields of study are asked to make their contributions, especially—but not exclusively—regarding a foundational grasp of their objects and methods, which quite certainly presuppose an underlying connection with a broader vision.

In keeping with the wide-ranging approach which has guided previous editions of the Conference—in a spirit of pursuing unity in diversity—we shall consider the impact of conceptions of ultimate reality on culture/worldviews, aesthetics/the arts, knowledge/epistemology, empirical sciences, health/therapy, understanding of personhood, education, and religions/theology in an effort to formulate the interplay between the formal and transcendental dimensions of human experience and work towards a valid, inclusive model.

In addition to those professionally engaged in teaching and research, students are also welcome and will receive a substantial discount on the registration fee.
