Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung, Reichpietschufer 50, 10785 Berlin

Event access: Public

The panel discussion will explore the question of academic freedom in Germany. What does it mean when more and more cost and benefit aspects of science come to the fore, when theoretical research and so-called orchid subjects are denied the right to exist? What are the conditions of scientists working in Germany and where are there (unwanted) boundaries and interventions? Where do we have to actively protect the freedom of science and what should we do about it? Panel guests: Prof. Dr. h.c. Jutta Allmendinger**,** Ph.D., President of the WZB Berlin Social Science Center
Dr. Nausikaä El-Mecky, Tenure Track professor Art History, Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona and Die Junge Akademie
Ilyas Saliba, Research Fellow of the Research Uni "Democracy and Democratization", WZB Berlin Social Science Center
Prof. Dr. Uwe Schimank, professor for sociology, University of Bremen This event is part of the WZB series "Achtung: Demokratie" and is moderated by Dr. Fabian Schmidt (Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics and Die Junge Akademie).

    • Asymmetrie und Reziprozität in der Moralphilosophie

      Kolloquium „A/Symmetrie — Interdisziplinäre Perspektiven“

      Emmanuel Levinas ist in der Philosophie bekannt dafür, dass er die Moral ausgehend von der Begegnung mit dem anderen Menschen als asymmetrisches Verhältnis beschreibt. In ihrem Vortrag wird Eva Buddeberg zeigen, warum Levinas die Grunderfahrung der Moral überhaupt als asymmetrisch kennzeichnet, bevor sie dann erläutern wird, warum die hier festgestellte Asymmetrie nicht der Forderung nach Gleichheit bzw. Reziprozität entgegensteht, sondern auf einer anderen Ebene zu verorten ist.
