HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

More than 300 leading thinkers from 40 different countries will gather in Honolulu May 25-31 for the Eleventh East-West Philosopher’s Conference, a landmark international conference series dating back to the 1930s.

Conference sessions (excluding meals) are free and open to the public, and will be held at the East-West Center’s Hawai‘i Imin International Conference Center (Jefferson Hall, 1777 East-West Road). 

The theme of this year’s conference is the concept of “Place.” Speakers will reflect on such ideas as the place of identity and privacy; place and culture; places with political or religious significance; places of both conflict and peace; places of memory and mediation; and the place of philosophy itself.

The East-West Philosophers’ Conference is funded by UH Manoa’s Philosophy Department and the East-West Center.
