About us

Launched almost twenty years ago, our Department is specific for its emphasis on the links between philosophy and other domains of knowledge. A proper study of traditional philosophical problems, we believe, requires proficiency in logic, scholarship and acquaintance with insights from other disciplines in humanities, social and natural sciences. This defines the mission of our Department. All three levels of study - undergraduate (BA), graduate (MA) and postgraduate (PhD) - represent a mixture of the "analytic" approach characteristic of the leading Anglo-American universities and the "continental" approach distinctive of the Central European universities with their emphasis on the history of philosophy. In our view, the primary aim of university studies of philosophy is familiarity with a broad range of traditional philosophical problems, of the conceptual toolbox for understanding these problems and the world around us, as well as the acquisition of skills of argumentation, interpretation and critical analysis of beliefs, claims and theories from various areas of human knowledge.

The Society for the Advancement of Philosophy and Center for Croatian Studies of the University of Zagreb invite you to participate with a paper presentation in the Zagreb Applied Ethics Conference 2015 (ZAEC 2015) to be held from the 29th June to the 1st July 2015 in Zagreb, Croatia.

The plenary lectures at the conference will be given by Emeritus Professor David Heyd (Hebrew University of Jerusalem & Tel Aviv University – Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics) and Professor Eric T. Olson (University of Sheffield – Department of Philosophy).

The aim of the conference is to gather philosophers and scholars from other disciplines primarily, but not exclusively, from Central and Southeastern Europe who will present papers on various topics in contemporary applied ethics, ranging from particular case studies to more general (foundational and methodological) considerations. In keeping with the intention to promote rational and critical approach to, and public understanding of, the work in applied ethics, we encourage clearly structured submissions adhering to the principles of conceptual rigor, soundness of argumentation and scientific accuracy.
