The Summer School of Philosophy is a program of intensive lectures and seminars with the participation of prominent world experts in the fields of research on the problems of consciousness, free will and moral responsibility. The organiser of the Summer School of Philosophy is the Center for the Consciousness Studies (CCS) - a research unit founded by Doctor of Philosophy Dmitry Volkov.
The Summer Philosophical School is held every 2 years, starting with 2014. The first school was devoted to the topic of free will and moral responsibility, led by Professor John Fisher. The topic of the second school, which took place in 2016 in Riga, was the question of the relationship between freedom of will and consciousness. The participants were able to discuss topical philosophical problems with the famous expert Derk Pereboom and to arrange philosophical debates in the very center of the historical part of the city.
In 2018, the Summer School was organised in Malta. At the personal invitation, the school was held at the summer residence of the President of Malta. At the meeting, the participants discussed the problem of personal identity together with Professor of the University of Oxford, Richard Swinburne.
In 2020, the school was held online for the first time. Under the guidance of Australian National University professor Daniel Stoljar, participants explored the relationship between consciousness and introspection.
