Official Launch of the New Research Centre for Post-Kantian European Philosophy
The launch of the new Research Centre for Post-Kantian European Philosophy took place on Tuesday 15 October 2019, with an inaugural seminar led by Guest Speaker, Simon Critchley (Hans Jonas Professor of Philosophy, New School for Social Research) on the concept of Tragedy.
In his talk, deriving from his new publication, Tragedy, the Greeks and Us, Professor Critchley explored the nature and experience of Tragedy, both in terms of what it meant to the Greeks, and what it might mean for us today. The seminar concluded with his reply to two responses to the book by Andrew Cooper (Philosophy, Warwick) and David Fearn (Classics, Warwick).
A recording of Simon Critchley in conversation with Keith Ansell-Pearson, Director, and Daniele Lorenzini, Deputy Director of the Centre for Research in Post-Kantian European Philosophy, can be accessed on the Research Centre's new pages here:
