Speaker(s): Professor Rahel Jaeggi

Recorded on 13 March 2012 at Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building

Does modern society cause us to be alienated from ourselves? This lecture will argue that a re-thinking of the philosophical concept of alienation can provide us with an important resource for social critique.

Rahel Jaeggi is professor for practical philosophy in the Department of Philosophy at the Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin.
