From 16th to 19th September 2012 the annual Philusophicum Lech will take place in Lech am Arlberg in Austria. The motto of this 16th Philosophicum Lech symposium is

“Animals. Humans and their Nature.”

An international mix of philosophers, biologists, behavioral scientists, cultural scholars and students is meeting in the alpine village of Lech to talk about philosophical questions and discuss them with their audience.

The language spoken at the Philosophicum Lech is – unfortunately – German. So some knowledge of the language would be beneficial.
