Lithuanian Association for Phenomenology Conference

There will be a phenomenology conference on the “Phenomenological Concept of Sedimentation”. In Vilnius, Lithuania on the 14-15th October, 2022.


Lithuanian Association for Phenomenology, in cooperation with Lithuanian Culture Research Institute announce a call for papers for the conference on the concept of sedimentation.

The phenomenological concept of sedimentation makes it possible to integrate two dimensions important to knowledge, which are often separated. Sedimentation as a process combines synchronous structures and their diachronic dynamics. Sedimentation not only combines structures and processes, stable order, and its becoming, but also explains how stable structures are separated and formed in dynamic processes. Cultural actions, despite their creativity, are not an establishment out of nothing. They are based on previous actions, their passive or active memory and extension. Passive memory can be converted to active memory through actualization and reactivation actions. The aim of the conference is to discuss the phenomenological concept of sedimentation and its application in phenomenology of the embodiment, phenomenology of habitus and tradition, cultural philosophy, political philosophy, and philosophy of emotions.
