Morning Lecture Series

Each day of the Libori Summer School will begin with a morning lecture that will be delivered to all participants. These lectures will introduce students to the topics being discussed across all the individual courses on offer. This will give attendees an impression of each area of philosophical research being covered this year. It will also provide them with the occasion to hear from many of the world renowned speakers visiting the Center HWPS this summer. These lectures are open to the public.

Discover Paderborn: In addition to the Libori Festival, there are many interesting things to see and do in and around Paderborn. Located in the heart of the city are the 200 fresh water springs, the Paderquellen, which are the birthplace of the Pader River. You can also visit the Paderborn Cathedral, the adjoining Museum of the Diocese of Paderborn. Beside the cathedral you will find the Museum of Imperial Palace (Kaiserpfalz), where you can see the foundation walls of Charlemagne’s 8th century complex. In the north-western part of the city, you will find both the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum, the world’s largest computer museum, and Schloss Neuhaus, a Renaissance era castle with lovely Baroque gardens. About 35 kilometers northeast of Paderborn is the Externsteine, a sacred site of the pagan Saxons, located in the Teutoburg Forest, and approximately 20 kilometers southwest is the infamous Wewelsburg castle. More information can be found on the Tourism page of the City of Paderborn’s website.
