18:00: Opening Lecture

Rainer Forst (Frankfurt a.M.): Noumenale Entfremdung. Gesellschaftskritik nach Kant und Marx

Be advised that the opening lecture will also be held as part of the regular lecture series of the Department of Philosophy. Since we want to reach out with the lecture to a larger audience (students and interested public in Göttingen), we asked Rainer Forst to give his talk in German.
