HANDBOOK OF THE FIRST WORLD CONGRESS ON ANALOGY – Mexico, November 4-6, 2015
HANDBOOK OF THE
FIRST WORLD CONGRESS
Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, Puebla, Mexico
November 4-6, 2015
This event is being sponsored and organized by the Meritorious Autonomous University of Puebla (BUAP), Adam Mickiewicz University (UAM Poznań, Poland) and the Popular Autonomous University of the State of Puebla (UPAEP) in Mexico. It is not a coincidence that the First World Congress on Analogy is being organized as a Polish-Mexican collaboration, as both countries have made great contributions to the theory of analogy. There is a Polish tradition in logico-philosophical studies on analogy. Józef M. Bocheński (University of Fribourg), Mieczysław Albert Krąpiec and his collaborators (John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin) and Włodzimierz Ławniczak (Adam Mickiewicz University) elaborated original approaches to analogy in logic, metaphysics and art history, respectively. In Mexico there are many very interesting approaches based on analogy, and one of the greatest examples is Mauricio Beuchot’s analogical hermeneutics. We are extremely happy and proud that he is one of the Congress invited speakers, and interestingly enough, he has been is inspired by the works of Józef M. Bocheński.
