Invitation to the summer debate: "How natural is competition?"

The Institute of Sociology invites students and interested guests to our summer debate in the lecture hall on July 3, 2024 at 6 p.m. c.t. Prof. Dr. Jürgen Gadau (Institute of Evolution and Biodiversity) and Prof. Dr. Joachim Renn (Institute of Sociology) will explore the question: "How natural is 'competition'?"

On the one hand, the focus is on the question of the extent to which the principle of "Competitiveness" is suitable for bringing evolutionary biology and social theory into conversation with each other. On the other hand, to what extent such a discussion depends on how the "phenomenon" is questioned in both disciplines.

The panelists will continue the discussion they began on Darwin Day ("Evolution is blind, but not random") in a different setting.

Following the event, the Institute invites you to a garden party in the courtyard to continue the discussion in an informal setting.
