Texas A&M University hosted the 2016 Southwest Seminar in Continental Philosophy (SWSCP). The SWSCP is an interdisciplinary learned society that meets annually to discuss the work of influential European thinkers, writers, and artists of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Leading figures of influence include Hegel, Marx, Kierkegaard, Dostoevsky, Schelling, Nietzsche, Freud, Heidegger, Sartre, Beauvoir, Merleau-Ponty, Marcuse, Adorno, Levinas, Arendt, Derrida, Foucault, Ricoeur, Habermas, Gadamer, Agamben, and others. Now in its sixth year, the Seminar has earned a reputation for providing scholars working in the field of Continental Philosophy with a collegial, supportive research environment. Faculty as well as doctoral candidates were welcome to present their research. The Seminar strictly adhered to a policy of equal gender representation.
