Dear Colleagues
After a first edition in João Pessoa, Brazil and a second edition in
Warsaw, Poland with the participation of scholars such as Saul Kripke
(Schock Prize), Laurent Lafforgue (Fields Medal), Michal Heller (Templeton
Prize), Dov Gabbay, Jessica Frazier, Snezana Lawrence, Jan Wolesnki, etc.,
this week will start the third edition of the World Congress of Logic and
Religion (WoCoLoR 3)  in Varanasi, India.
Varanasi is one of the oldest and most sacred cities in the World, by the
Ganges river. The event will take place at the  Banaras Hindu University at
the time of the Dev Deepawali festival (Festival of Lights of the Gods). The
steps of all the ghats on the riverfront of the Ganges River, from Ravidas
Ghat at the southern end to Rajghat, are lit with more than a million
earthen lamps (diyas) in honour of Ganga, the Ganges, and its presiding
goddess. According to history the gods are believed to descend to Earth to
bathe in the Ganges on this day.
For this luminous edition we will have the participation of  scholars such
as Piergiorgio Odifredi (Turin University, Italy), Ephraim Mer (Bar-Ilan
University, Israel), Ngawang Samten (Central University for Tibetan
Studies, India), Thomas Regehly (Schopenhauer Society, Germany), Caroline
Pires Ting (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), Graham Priest
(Melbourne University, Australia).
Welcome to Varanasi !
