Prof. Dr. Annabel Herzog (University of Haifa) and Dr. Pascal Delhom (EUF, Philosophy Department) organise an international scientific event on the topic: „Levinas and the Real: Politics, Community, Religion“.

The conference will bring together Levinas scholars working and writing in different linguistic spheres and academic disciplines and promote new interpretations of Emmanuel Levinas’s philosophy, which insist on its relevance in social-political empirical situations and, hence, emphasize its importance for a philosophical discourse that deals with practical situations, among others through a specific understanding of the idea of Europe, judaism, and peace. The conference is organised in cooperation with ICES and funded by the DFG.
