Closing Discussion with Akeel Bilgrami and Bernd Scherer

August 26th, 2018

In this closing discussion, Akeel Bilgrami and Bernd Scherer debate their mutual arguments and, together with the audience, weigh in on the presented lectures.

 

How has humanity become objectified and naturalized through the conceptual and technological instruments of modernity? And how can we overcome this categorical divide and envision relational concepts of human subjectivity and action? Wherein lie the progressive, emancipatory affordances of technological innovations and which latent human traits have they released?

In this closing discussion, Akeel Bilgrami and Bernd Scherer delve deeper into these questions and discuss them with the audience.
