Løgstrup and Levinas Conference

29/06/2016 - 01/07/2016

The aim of the conference is to explore the philosophical links between the two thinkers, looking both at shared ground but also potential differences. Themes include the backgrounds to both in Heidegger and others; their respective treatments of ethics and religion, and of ethics and politics; their conception of the place of the other person in ethics, and his or her demands on us; their phenomenological methodologies; how they relate to other figures in the ethical tradition such as Kant and Kierkegaard; whether either or both have anything to offer to contemporary issues concerning normativity, autonomy, obligation, care and the like.

Confirmed speakers:

Anna-Marie Christensen [Southern Denmark], Peter Dews [Essex], Fiona Ellis [Heythrop], Michael Morgan [Toronto/Indiana], Eric Nelson [Hong Kong], George Pattison [Glasgow], Diane Perpich [Clemson], Robert Stern [Sheffield], Patrick Stokes [Deakin]
