Conference Description:

The world changed dramatically after Darwin, and we are still coming to terms with the Darwinian revolution, as well as its impact on virtually every domain of human culture. We will reassess this impact especially on science (Biology, genetics, Artificial Life, Psychology and Linguistics), philosophy (Anthropology, Ethics, Epistemology, Aesthetics), and religion (Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and other religious faiths). The reception of Darwinism in the different countries and cultures will also be a major issue that is to be addressed in the Congress.

The deadline for abstracts/proposals is 10 July 2009.

Main key speakers: Michael Ruse, George Coyne, Francis Ayala, John Haught, Fiorenzo Facchini
