In the preface to the first edition of his philosophical
Encyclopedia, Hegel boldly predicted that dialectic would
one day be recognized as “the only true method” of philosophy. Hegel’s
dialectic signaled a direct challenge to Aristotelian logic over
200 years ago, yet in many areas its impact has barely been felt.
The Institute for Advanced Dialectical Research calls this historic
interdisciplinary Symposium in order to bring thinkers together
from around the world in order to discuss the implications of dialectic
on various fields and the potentials for further dialectical research
