Diotima’s Laughter: Philosophy as a Way of Life
Master Class | 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM | Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists
Visiting professor Michelle Boulous Walker is guest at the Project “Center History of Women Philosophers” at the Department of Philosophy in Paderborn.
Professor Boulous Walker is author of Slow Philosophy: Reading Against the Institution (Bloomsbury 2017), Philosophy and the Maternal Body: Reading Silence (Routledge 1998) and Performing Sexualities (IMA 1994). Her work in philosophy as a way of life explores the ethical vocation of the philosopher in terms of the practical pursuit of wisdom. To this end, her research focusses on the contributions of women as philosophers.
During her stay in Paderborn, she will hold a master class on “Diotima’s Laughter: Philosophy as a Way of Life”.
