The Parmenideum accepts contributions from
all those with an interest in philosophy, science and literature.
You do not
need formal qualifications to present your ideas or work, unless
you wish to present at one of the formal seminars at which academics
and other professionals will be present. Even in such a case
however, it may still be possible for you to present your ideas
and work if they are deemed interesting to the proceedings.
Academics and other professionals
There are two ways for academics,
writers, journalists and others who have professional experience
in philosophy, science and literature to present at the Parmenideum:
Formal seminars and
conferences attended principally by other
academics and professionals.
Informal meetings with the
specific objective of disseminating ideas in philosophy or science
to the general, non-professional public. Presentations in this
category should be designed so that persons with little or no background
in philosophy and science will be able to grasp the important ideas
in your field of interest.
If you have a proposal for a topic for a
one or two day presentation please send your CV and a synopsis
outlining your topic to firstname.lastname@example.org
should make it clear whether you intend to address a professional
audience or one drawn from the general public.
Students - Undergraduate
and Post Graduate.
The Parmenideum is an ideal venue for presenting and testing your
ideas and knowledge of philosophy and science, where you can
address other people similarly interested in philosophy and science.
You will benefit greatly from interacting with a wide audience from
whom you will receive critical feedback on your ideas and work.
If you are a student interested in being
a speaker you may send your CV and a letter introducing your topic
For those who have a non-professional interest in philosophy and
science the Parmenideum welcomes and encourages your contributions.
If you are attending one of the informal philosophy encounters
you do not need to send prior details of your intended presentation.
You will only need to inform us of your intention once you arrive,
for which time will be scheduled during the encounter.
