Hegel and politics
Prof. em. Dr. Winfried Thaa, University of Trier, Political Sciences
Prof. Dr. Michael Weingarten, University of Stuttgart, Institute for Philosophy
To mark the occasion of Hegel’s 250th birthday on 27 August, 2020, this interdisciplinary lecture series breathes new life into Hegel’s ‘Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences’. The series is aimed at a wider and non-academic audience. For Hegel, philosophy does not come alive when it is merely re-narrated, but when one’s thoughts are brought to life by discussions and contradictions. Each evening lecture will be presented by not one, but two lecturers. A Hegel-expert alongside an expert in the field in question, art or religion. The dialogue that arises from this, and from the controversial discussion that follows, give the audience not only insight into Hegel’s philosophical system, but also confronts them with the question of which aspects of Hegel’s philosophy are still applicable today?
Organization and Moderation: Prof. Dr. Andreas Luckner and Dr. Sebastian Ostritsch
