Continental Philosophy Group Talk (Robert Stern, University of Sheffield)
Thursday September 19, 2019, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The group welcomes Robert Stern, professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Sheffield. Professor Stern’s main interests in the history of philosophy are 19th-century post-Kantian German philosophy, especially Hegel. In contemporary philosophy, he focuses on epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and political philosophy. His current work centres around the Danish philosopher and theologian K. E. Løgstrup, as well as around Martin Luther viewed from a philosophical perspective. His most recent publications include The Radical Demand in Løgstrup’s Ethics (OUP, 2019), Kantian Ethics: Value, Agency, and Obligation (OUP, 2015), and Understanding Moral Obligation: Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard (CUP, 2012).
A workshop on The Radical Demand in Løgstrup’s Ethics with the author will be available on Friday, September 20, 2019, 9:00 am – 12:00 noon.
A talk title and an abstract for Professor Stern’s lecture will be added to this page at a time closer to the event.
