About the
Conference

The Philosophy of the City (PotC) Research  Group takes the city as an object of study, focusing on its political, social, epistemological, metaphysical, ethical, and environmental dimensions. 

From an interdisciplinary perspective, it incorporates disciplines such as urban planning, environmental science and studies, ecology, architecture, geography, and the arts. Research questions often deal with applied philosophy and ethics, and utilize established knowledge from other areas of study. All philosophical traditions are welcome.

The group holds a conference annually, along with sessions at the American Philosophical Association’s meetings. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the philosophical dimensions of the city.

STRANDS

Research questions and areas that exemplify a particularly philosophical interest in cities have emerged within the recent decade, showing how philosophers and philosophically inclined interdisciplinary scholars can uniquely contribute to an understanding of the city. For this conference, we welcome all submissions aiming to understand the ontology of the city, the city as a concept, any of the ethical, aesthetic, or environmental dimensions of cities or urban life.
