This year in June Jürgen Habermas turns 90. We would like to use this occasion to hold an international conference to honour one of the greatest intellectuals of our times. We believe that the most appropriate way to appreciate such an important thinker is to reflect on his diagnoses as well as his conceptual and theoretical methods and to apply his legacy with respect to the experiences of our day. Habermas’s ideas provide intellectual tools not only to understand pathologies, disfigurements and developments that threaten to undermine political and social life in the West but also to search for ways to cope with them. At the conference we will be especially interested in the following topics:

? Jürgen Habermas’s contribution to and transformation of the critical theory of society

? communicative rationality and communicative action

? discourse ethics and discursive theory of law

? deliberative democracy – liberal and republican traditions

? constitutionalisation of international law

? network society and the future of the public sphere

? the future of the EU

? liberal eugenics and ‘ethics of the species’

? religions in contemporary societies and the future of religions

We welcome papers (in German or English) on any topic to do with the conference theme. Please submit an extended abstract (max. 400 words, prepared for blind review) by 5th May 2019 through the conference website. Papers should be suitable for 20-25 minutes’ panel presentations.
