At the Abyss - Today and Tomorrow

Lecture | Prof. Dr. em. Jean-Luc Nancy | January 13, 2021 | 18 h

We are looking forward to welcoming the renowned thinker Prof. Dr. em. Jean-Luc Nancy at the GSPoL. Prof. Nancy will teach a PhD workshop and give a public lecture, which focuses on the abyss and its non-negative potentiality - keeping in mind that the death of god, the end of the law of causation have left us with no metaphysical "Grund" (German for "reason" as well as "ground"). Please contact us via email if you are interested in joining the event via Zoom.
