The Columbia Society for Comparative Philosophy (CSCP) is a University Seminar dedicated to the advancement of projects that draw on both western and non-western philosophy. The CSCP meets monthly on the campus of Columbia University and occasionally hosts conferences.
In order to facilitate an ongoing exchange of new ideas, we invite speakers and respondents from a variety of disciplines. Seminar meetings are loosely organized around an annual theme and are geared towards exploratory conversation. Previous themes have included the following: “Personal Identity” (2007-8) and “Ethics” (2008-9). The theme for the 2009-2010 academic year is “Language and Reality.” All meetings are free and open to the public. And we welcome participation from students and faculty from variety of disciplines and institutions.
