This year marks the 75th anniversary of publication, in the Buenos Aires newspaper La Nación [The Nation], of a series of lectures by the Spanish philosopher José Ortega-y-Gasset that comprise his work entitled Meditación de la Técnica [Meditation on Technique]. To commemorate this occasion, the Ortega y Gasset Foundation is sponsoring a conference to be held in the Ortega y Gasset Foundation Headquarters, C/ Fortuny 53, 28010 Madrid, Spain on November 3-5, 2010:
Ortega-y-Gasset and his “Meditation on Technique” upon the 75th anniversary of its publication in La Nación (Buenos Aires).
Registration and fees:
- 150€ if paid before September 15, 2010.
- 200€ if paid before October 30, 2010.
- Students: 75€ if paid before September 15, 2010, and 125€ if paid before October 30, 2010.
This conference is envisioned as a time to celebrate the importance of a work that has not always been well known and to promote its dissemination worldwide. It is also an opportunity to study the validity and significance of Ortega y Gasset’s reflections upon technique, the role it plays in his work as a whole, and the present-day relevance of his aims—all in all, to vindicate his importance in the history of twentieth-century thought and to enhance public knowledge of him.
Speakers will have a period of 30 minutes for their presentation. The text of their address will be published and must be submitted to the Organizing Committee prior to September 30, 2010. Articles must be no longer than 30 pages, double-spaced, on DIN A4 paper (10,000-12,000 words, including notes). The font used will be Times New Roman, 12-point for the main text and 10-point for footnotes. Conference languages will be Spanish and English. Articles must contain an abstract of not more than 100 words as well as a list of key words, both of which must have a Spanish version and an English version.
