Course aim

ISSO is a six days school which provides an unique insight into the contemporary debate on ontology. Six leading philosophers will address this classical philosophical question from different perspectives.
We do not intend to endorse one particular idea of ontology; on the contrary we have attempted to gather what we consider to be the most interesting philosophical perspectives of our time.
We offer a cutting edge and high-quality programme, aimed at fostering a rich and lively intellectual exchange.

Credits info

Each speaker will hold three seminars over three days (each seminar will be two hours long, including discussion).

The school includes two social evenings where you will have the chance to taste some local products, while enjoying music performances and readings of classic poems.

There is also the option of a guided tour of the lagoon, with dinner on the boat.
