International Workshop: The Self-Determined Individual in the Enlightenment

Workshop | 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM | Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists

It has often been pointed out that emancipation of the individual from traditional conventions has been the hallmark of the European enlightenment. But only recently the contribution of female philosophers and political thinkers to this process has become the focus of research in the history of philosophy and political theory. The present workshop has the aim to present some cutting-edge research contributions to this burgeoning field.
