This exploration will also touch on their intersection with artificial intelligence. By offering a comprehensive overview, attendees will gain profound insights into the historical and future perspectives of these ideas.

The conference will include conversations about ideas from scholars and students from all over the world, with a focus on working together globally. Dr. Mohammed Hasan Alwan, CEO of the Literature, Publishing, and Translation Commission, emphasizes that what sets this conference apart is the wide range of academic, scientific, and cultural perspectives among the attendees. Participants include experts in philosophy, researchers in intellectual and critical sciences, specialists in the natural sciences, writers, and linguists from both Saudi Arabia and around the world.

Dr. Alwan emphasizes the Authority’s commitment to making philosophy accessible to diverse audiences and highlights the conference’s rich agenda, including educational workshops, youth-oriented programs, the “Intersections of Philosophy and Art” exhibition, and philosophical debates among university students.

The inclusion of the Saudi Philosophical Society into the International Union of Philosophical Societies during the conference marks a momentous achievement for Saudi Arabia within the global philosophical realm. This event seeks to facilitate the sharing of knowledge between Saudi Arabia and the international community, elevating the Kingdom’s position as a leader in both scientific and intellectual domains.
