Dao De Jing
Our second international symposium "New Questions on the Old Master" will take place in St. John under the Rock (near Prague) in December
The symposium will be dealing with archaeological-historical, philosophical, and religious context of the Laozi text on the one hand, and with the
textual analysis and hermeneutics of chapters 4-9 and the possibilities of its alternative translation on the other.
We welcome submission of abstracts and papers in the four aforementioned areas. The symposium will be held in English and Czech.
A specialized symposium on Dao De Jing will take place as an independent part of the conference “Education and Sustainable Life”, Prague & St. John under the Rock, Czech Republic, June 22–26, 2010 (details: http://www.svatojanskakolej.cz/html/2010circular.htm).
UPDATE: due to an additional source of funding it is possible to reduce the conference fee to 150 EUR. The deadline is extended to April 20th, 2010. (Those who have paid the original fee will be reimbursed at the registration).
