Lecture Series: Human – Life – Technology



Within the context of the lecture series ‘Human – Life – Technology’, we invite experts in loose succession three to four times per semester to present their current research in the field of philosophical anthropology, biophilosophy and natural philosophy, philosophy of technology, reflection on science and technology, or ethics. We discuss with our guests the philosophical challenges associated with the fields of tension body/soul, life/spirit, nature/culture, individuality/sociality, and necessity/freedom. In particular, we explore how our thoughts, feelings, and actions change in the modern technological world. And we inquire about the ethical norms that can do justice to the vulnerable, fragile, contingent, precarious, inaccessible nature of our human form of life.

The lecture series is targeted at students of philosophy as well as students, researchers, and citizens interested in philosophical and interdisciplinary problems.
