2 nd Congress of the International Center of Studies on Contemporary Nihilism (CeNic)


“Human Existence and Coexistence in the Epoch of Nihilism”.

The second congress of the International Centre of Studies on Contemporary Nihilism (CeNic), “Human Existence and Coexistence in the Epoch of Nihilism”, will be held from 28th to 30th November in Ljubljana (Slovenia). This event will reflect on the relationship between humanism and nihilism, framed by the problems of the contemporary world (scientific and technical progress, global social conditions or the violence of global dehumanization). Considering that the experience of nihilism predetermines different social crises, it is clear that the question of how man fulfils himself in his humanity has become problematic. All this leads to new questions about the value foundations on which human existence is based, communication, the relationship to common life, or an ethics that allows a new humanization. It becomes necessary, then, to confront the nihilistic challenge that pervades the contemporary world.
