The Unity of a Person: Ontology – Subjectivity – Normativity

Ort: Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Beginn: 25.04.2019 13:00
Ende: 27.04.2019 15:00

The Conference will discuss Eric T. Olson’s thesis that “no account of our identity has yet been proposed that guarantees […] the coincidence of what is important in our identity with the actual conditions of our identity”. The conference aims to develop a conception of a person that is both ontologically and ethically coherent by raising the following questions:


- What kind of ontological basis (substances, lives, processes) does most justice to the normative dimension of a person?

- How are ontological, subjective and normative dimensions interwoven in the concept of a person?

- Does subjectivity meet the requirements of the conception of a person?

- How can we understand the intersubjective and normative reality of persons that can be called a “person-space”?
