Philosophicum Lech 2022
20.9. until 25.9.2022
The Philosophicum Lech is a philosophical symposium in Lech am Arlberg in Vorarlberg (Austria). It has been established for the philosophical, cultural and social science reflection, discussion and encounter.
The idea for a philosophical exchange in Lech arose in a conversation between Mayor Ludwig Muxel and the Vorarlberg writer Michael Köhlmeier. Austrian philosopher Konrad Paul Liessmann [de] was appointed to be the scientific director.
For his efforts to convey scientific work to a broad population, Konrad Paul Liessmann was named “Scientist of the Year 2006” by education and science journalists.
In 1997, the first Philosophicum Lech took place in which around 100 visitors participated. In more recent years, the event counted more than 600 participants.
This respected symposium is open to an interested audience. As a result you can also attend the next symposium that always takes place in September. Money, religion, the pursuit of happiness or the question of infinity: the topics at the annual Philosophicum in Lech are chosen to be very broad and yet far from random. The establishment of the interdisciplinary symposium, which is rare in the German-speaking region, in the fascinating mountains of the Arlberg adds special charm and makes it hugely attractive.
Consider, listen and discuss the major issues of our time surrounded by alpine nature: be there at the next Philosophicum in Lech!
