From 2010 – 2014, the LOGOS research group at the University of Barcelona joined with research groups in political philosophy at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra and the Universitat de Girona in a large-scale research project titled PERSP: Philosophy of Perspectival Thought and Fact. PERSP was financed by the Spanish Consolider program, and it generated an enormous amount of philosophical activity and research output, forging ties between researchers at diverse universities that persisted well after PERSP’s funding ended. In order to formalize the partnership between the diverse analytic-tradition philosophy groups in Catalunya, the three universities (UB, UPF, UdG) came together to create the Barcelona Institute of Analytic Philosophy. BIAP’s mission is to continue and strengthen the collaborative connections between its member research groups, and host future joint research projects funded at the state and international levels.
The first BIAP Workshop will be centered on the notion of disagreements, and will be held in Barcelona on January 24 – 25, 2019.
