The Croatian Society for Analytic Philosophy would like to offer support to our colleagues and members from the Department of philosophy in the Croatian Studies at the University of Zagreb. This is one of the best philosophy departments in the country. The potential shut down of the Department would be a terrible loss for philosophy in Croatia.
Our statement of support can be read here (in Croatian).
For a history of events that led to reducing the enrollment quota to zero for the Department of philosophy in Croatian Studies and for reasons why we should preserve that philosophy study, see the entry at Daily Nous.
Here you can sign the petition against closing down the Department of philosophy in the Croatian Studies.
At the meeting held on 9.2.2017. members of CSAP expressed support to colleagues from the Department of Philosophy in the Croatian Studies at the University of Zagreb.
The adopted statement can be read here.

With kind regards,
the Steering committee of the Croatian Society for Analytic Philosophy
Faculty members of the Department of philosophy in the Croatian Studies at the University of Zagreb on 6.2.2017. sent an open letter to the Head of the Croatian Studies and Scientific and teaching board of the Croatian Studies. In the letter they direct attention to the problems they are facing in their work, which they have not been able to solve through the standard bodies of their institution, because of which they are now addressing the expert community and public in general. Many Department teachers are our members. Thus, we as a professional philosophical association, support their endeavors and convey their letter.
The letter can be read here (in Croatian).
The steering committee of the Croatian Society for Analytic Philosophy invites all members to participate in a meeting which will be held on Thursday, 9.2.2017., at 12:00, at the Department of Philosophy, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka.
The official call can be read here.
The suggested agenda of the meeting:
– Report on the Financial plan for 2016. and the suggested Financial plan for 2017.
– Plans for the organization of the presentation of Nenad Smokrović’s recently published book ,,Science and the Method”
– Support to the Department of Philosophy in the former Center for Croatian Studies of the University in Zagreb
We are happy to announce the publication of Nenad Smokrović’s book “Znanost i metoda” (Eng. “Science and the Method”).
The book is published by KruZak
Nenad Smokrović is a full professor in the Department of philosophy and Faculty of Economics at the University of Rijeka. He is also a long-term member of the Croatian Society for Analytic Philosophy.
His fields of interest are philosophy of logic, theories of rationality, and the methodology of scientific research.
In the book, Smokrović discusses issues related to the methodology of scientific research. The primary aim is not to state and describe specific methods how to conduct research in a scientific field. Rather, the aim is to explain the nature of scientific research, the relationship between theory and reality, and to make salient the criteria common to all sciences, but also to indicate peculiarities pertaining to specific scientific fields. The special focus is on the field of economical studies to which the insights drawn form a more general level are applied. (Taken from Kruzak)
