The fifth biennial Philosophy at Play conference will be hosted by
the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences
in Prague on the 24th-25th of June 2019.


Like the previous four Philosophy at Play conferences
held at the University of Gloucestershire (UK)
(https://playandplaywork.com/philosophy-at-play-conference/),
the 2019 conference aims at a broad spectrum of scholars, practitioners, and researchers
interested in the intersection between philosophy and play.
This time, the local organizers encourage participants to reflect especially
on the connection between play and democracy.
