Dear Friends, 

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the World LUMEN Congress 2016. Logos Universality Mentality Education Novelty. 15th LUMEN Anniversary Edition! 12- 17 April 2016, Iasi, Romania. 

World LUMEN Congress will explore new approaches in social and humanistic fields, through its anniversary theme “Logos Universality Mentality Education Novelty”, by bringing international academics, practitioners and experts together in Iasi, Romania, from 12 – 17 April 2016.

Aims & Scope |The goal of WLC2016 focuses on the interferences between the new theoretical approaches and the social and educational practice, taking into account the need for an ethical resizing of the social action.

  • Logos | aims to expose certain theoretical paradigms on social action, specific to the postmodern and transmodern paradigm, and the re-contextualization of the influences of modernity.
  • Universality | seeks the universalization of social and communicational paradigms, and their contextual applicability in the current communicational Universe.
  • Mentality | causes reflection upon the acceptability of new dimensions of knowledge and the relationship between mind and consciousness, of the different cultural and communicational perspectives.
  • Education | aims at the multidimensional approach of education in the context of the paradigmatic mutations generated by the switch towards the society of knowledge.
  • Novelty | seeks to highlight the issue generated by the need for personal, institutional and social adapting to what is new, and to a continuous paradigmatic change, both in the plan of knowledge and of social action.

There are expected papers in the social sciences and humanities fields, without being set a precise disciplinary border. There are expected papers to cover areas of interest and more. There are expected and encouraged the transdisciplinary approaches that overcome the existing cleavage between theory and empiric.
