Another new seminar will run from 10/13/23-12/15/23!
Today we assume that change in all areas of life, including its most basic conditions, will continue to accelerate. How can we manage to continually reorient ourselves? Can philosophy understand how to keep up with the times? Orientation is, in principle, the achievement of finding one’s way in an unsurveyable and uncertain situation so that one can successfully master the situation.
It involves finding paths both in the terrain and through all the circumstances of human life: not only our daily life but even our survival depends on the success of orientation. Orientation is ubiquitous today. But how, in fact, do we orient and reorient ourselves in our everyday lives? And how can we grasp this process philosophically?
This seminar will cover the first half of the philosophy of orientation’s primary text, Werner Stegmaier’s “What is Orientation? A Philosophical Investigation.” A second seminar in February-March will cover the second half of the book. To participate, apply via the form on the seminar page.
