Special thanks are in order to the Convenors Panos Theodorou and Fotini Vassiliou, who did a superb job of assembling a first-rate program and attending to every need of the many members and friends of the Circle in attendance. The level of presentation and discussion was once again very high.

Future meetings of the Husserl Circle include the 2019 meeting in Lisbon, Portugal, hosted by Carlos Lobo.

Convenor's Letter (October 18, 2017)

Dear members and friends of the Husserl Circle,

As you know by the letters and announcements from the Permanent Secretary of the Circle, Prof. Burt Hopkins, the 49th Annual Meeting of the Husserl Circle will be held in Mexico City, under the auspices of the Instituto de Investigaciones Filosóficas (Institute of Philosophical Research) of Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (National Autonomous University of Mexico), UNAM. It will take place on June 26-29, 2018.

The deadline for submissions will be February 1, 2018. Please submit either (1) a full paper prepared for a 30 minutes presentation (between 3900 and 4500 words), together with a short abstract of 150 words, or (2) a more substantial abstract of about 500 words, outlining the paper in a clear manner. Decisions will be communicated by March 1, 2018. Submissions should be sent to this dedicated email address: We also encourage to let us know as soon as possible if you would like to attend the Meeting making a Commentary to a paper, and in this case, in which thematic areas would you rather make it.

The venue of the meeting will be the Casa Universitaria del Libro, formerly a private residence built in 1920, now owned by UNAM and devoted to editorial and cultural activities. It is located in Colonia Roma, one of the most attractive neighborhoods of the city from an architectural point of view, very near the geographical center of the city, and at a step of the well-known Zona Rosa (Pink Zone), a touristic zone full of hotels, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and boutiques.

The hotel offer in the area of Casa Universitaria del Libro is vast and very varied in price and quality. We have, though, a main recommendation for a hotel: the Hotel María Cristina, located almost in the crossing of the two main avenues of the city (Insurgentes and Reforma), at a 15-20 minute walk from Casa Universitaria del Libro, with an excellent relation between price and quality. Its standard room is about $ 53 US.

We will soon have a website for the Meeting at, where you will find all information concerning the Meeting, the venue site, the suggested hotel and several other hotels, nearby restaurants, and other items.

Please direct any question to the same special address:

We look forward to welcoming you in Mexico City.

The Convenor, Antonio Zirión, and the organizing team: Esteban Marín, Jethro Bravo and Josué Cisneros.
