The aim of the XVII Annual Conference of the Polish Phenomenological Association—organized to commemorate the 110th anniversary of Jan Patočka’s birth, and the 40th anniversary of his tragic death—is to address main questions and issues raised by Patočka. As always, we welcome both historical, and systematic approaches. We also welcome original contributions inspired by Patočka’s philosophy.

From a systematic point of view, we want to deal with such issues as: the phenomenological interpretation of history, the possibilities and limits of a-subjective phenomenology, the question of subjectivity and intersubjectivity, and understanding of the soul as a “movement of existence.” In addition, we intend to ask questions of ethical and moral dimension of a philosophical reflection, of the body, and of the phenomenon of Central Europe.

From a historical point of view, we would like to pose questions about the legitimacy of Patočka’s interpretation of classical philosophers, such as Plato, Aristotle, Husserl, and Heidegger. An important question concerns the novum of Patočka in the context of European philosophy, in particular the development of the phenomenological movement, and its current meaning. In addition, we wish to raise the topic of Patočka’s cooperation with Polish philosophers, including Roman Ingarden, Tadeusz and Irena Krońska, and Krzysztof Michalski.

Our ambition is to present current original scholarship on Patočka’s philosophy, and to popularize it in Poland. However, the thematic scope of the conference is not limited to Patočka’s philosophy, and we also welcome studies inspired by Patočka or connected to philosophical problems raised by him.
