What is Enlightenment? (Forum for European Philosophy public discussion)

3 June 2015, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

Is the Enlightenment finished or is it an ongoing project? What does Enlightenment mean in a globalised world? In what ways might the concept of Enlightenment illuminate current issues of European identity, secularisation, and the so-called ‘clash of civilisations’? In this event, three speakers return to Immanuel Kant’s seminal essay ‘Answering the Question: What is Enlightenment?’ in order to address these questions.

Sacha Golob is Lecturer in Philosophy at King’s College London.

Ankhi Mukherjee is Associate Professor of English at the University of Oxford.

Danielle Sands is Lecturer in Philosophy at Royal Holloway, University of London and a Forum for European Philosophy Fellow.

Chair: Katrin Flikschuh is Professor of Political Theory at LSE
