Keynote Lecture: Philosophically Augmented Reality

Abstract: In this lecture I try to demonstrate that not only technology augments reality, but also philosophy. We will focus on the totally new experience of augmented reality provided by philosophical practice. Based on thinking and dialogical resources vs increasing data and information about things, philosophical practice opens up new perspectives on the world and on others, but also on oneself.
