Place, Commonality, and the Human: Towards a new Philosophical Anthropology

Workshop

  • 6th & 7th October 2016

About

Place, Commonality, and the Human: Towards a new Philosophical Anthropology is a workshop at Aarhus University in collaboration with Monash University and University of Tasmania.    

The contention of the workshop is to revitalize the philosophical questioning of the human being by engaging with the interrelations between the human, the ethical and the ontological. The workshop will use two key ideas as foci for an exploration of this intersection: place and commonality.
