Theory Amidst Crisis: Political Philosophy for Strained, Breaking, and Broken Institutions
Ort: Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften (FKH), Am Wingertsberg 4, 61348 Bad Homburg v.d. Höhe
Beginn: 13.02.2020 14:00
Ende: 14.02.2020 18:00
This conference aims to direct our thinking not toward grand theorizing about principles. Rather, we begin by considering dire problems – crises threatening good order and just relations – where old institutions falter and even break under the strain of new circumstance. Panels address issues such as the subtle and not so subtle interference with democratic politics facilitated by social media; privatization of public goods like education and medicine; and unprecedented flows of migrants seeking refuge from violence and climate change.
Justitia Amplificata Postdoc Fellows 2020 Maurits de Jongh, Susanne Mantel, and Gregory Whitfield
