Sanja Ivic

Pathways Mentors: Sanja Ivic

I have a Bachelor of Arts both in philosophy and comparative literature from University of Belgrade and a Master of Arts in Philosophy from Erasmus University in Rotterdam. I have a doctorate in philosophy from University of Belgrade. My research interests include: history of philosophy, philosophy of science, political philosophy, hermeneutics, ethics and literary theory. Plato, Spinoza, Kant, Kafka, Thomas Mann, C.G. Jung, Gadamer, Derrida, Donna Haraway, Ricoeur, Baudrillard and Rawls are thinkers who inspire my work.

I am a Research Associate at the Institute for European Studies in Serbia. I cooperate with various international scientific teams and organizations. I am a member of the Steering group of the global project 'Pluralism, Inclusion, Citizenship'. This project engages inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research dialogues. The main focus of the project is a critical examination of the theme of 'pluralism' and the challenges it is posing across the world today. The project engages with a number of core themes: challenging old concepts of citizen and alien; nations, fluid boundaries and citizenship; institutions, organizations and social movements; transnational political interlacing of contemporary life; new concepts, new forms of inclusion and so forth.

I am also a member of the Centre for Promoting Ideas global team, and of the International Advisory Board of both the American International Journal of Contemporary Research and the Journal of Law and Conflict Resolution.

I am particularly interested to contribute to the field of applied philosophy. My research includes philosophical analysis of the concept of citizenship and the idea of self employed within various legal documents (such as: the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights). My MA research and Bachelor of Arts degree in both philosophy and comparative literature have provided me strong foundation in understanding different aspects of cognition, knowledge acquisition and perception of reality. My research also includes philosophy applied to science. I try to examine some old scientific problems such as 'success of science' from philosophical and hermeneutical perspective. I explore the border between 'real' and 'unreal'. I argue that this question is directly linked to the most fundamental philosophical problem of reference. A revised and broadened concept of reference leads to a revised concept of reality.
