12th URPh Annual Seminar 2018 - Experiencing Reason and Freedom

University of Liège, April 24-27, 2018.

Reason and liberty are not only central notions for contemporary ethics and political philosophy, they are also subject to subjective experiences that need to be described from a phenomenological point of view. The 12th edition of the URPh annual seminar will be about how Reason and liberty are experienced. The scope of the seminar includes French and Austro-German phenomenological philosophy as well as approaches from other traditions (ordinary language philosophy, etc.) and interdisciplinary research.
