Philosophical practice to create humanizing relationships and peace contexts

Mexico2017What are the ICPPs?
ICPPs are the largest International Conferences in the field of philosophical practice. Since 1994, have concentrated the most important practical and applied philosophers of the international sphere such as Lou Marinoff, Gerd Achembach, Ran Lahav, Neri Polastri, Karin Murris, Oscar Brenifier, Ora Gruengard, Peter Raabe, Peter Harteloh, Anders Lindseth, Leon de Haas, Lydia Amir, José Barrientos, Roxana Kreimer (among other important philosophical practitioners), addressing the most diverse fields of aplication such as philosophical counseling, philosophy for children and young, philosophical workshops applied in various areas, philosophical cafes, philosophy for organizations, etc. 
Philosophical practice responds to a fundamental concern: the need for philosophical aplications and the need for philosophy on the part of society. Thus, since 70's and 80's of the past century, great exponents in this area have claimed that the work of philosophy has to do with approaching individuals, groups and organizations. This way, many methodologies, theoretical basis and materials have been constructed in order to emphasize that philosophy must be linked to an educational, interactive and applied task.

History of the ICPPS 

In 1994, the first International Conference of Philosophical Practice was held in Vancouver, and since then the ICPP has been developed every year or two in different parts of the world. Countries such as Canada, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, USA, UK, Denmark, South Korea, Greece, Serbia, Switzerland, Italy, etc. have hosted this Conferences. This year is a source of great pride because we are facing the first International Conference of Philosophical Practice to be held in Latin America in 2018, specifically in Mexico.
