Word in the Cultures of the East : Sound – Language – Book (Cracow, 28th – 30th November 2013)Jagiellonian University. Eastern Philosophy Section of the Philosophy of Culture Department
This year’s meeting will be dedicated to the issues of sound, language and writing which, although frequently featuring in contemporary Western thought, are rarely and still insufficiently addressed through their long lasting reflection in the Eastern cultures. Continuing the tradition established by our two highly successful conferences held in 2009 and 2011, we would like to invite scholars who conduct research into cultures, religions, and philosophies of the East (India, China, Japan, Tibet, Korea, and the Middle East), as well as those who are interested in the mutual influences between the East and the West.
Christine Guillebaud will deliver a paper about « The sound engineering of the Hindu Temple : artefacts, perception and effects » (Day 2, Friday 29th November, S1 9.30)
