Mensch und Gesellschaft zwischen Natur und Geschichte: Zum Verhältnis von Philosophischer Anthropologie und Kritischer Theorie

In the historical perspective of the conference sustainable development can be said to imply certain anthropological notions of the conditio humana in combination with a critical approach to the development of society. Thereby the intellectual traditions of the 20th century as addressed during the conference are transferred in to a preeminent discourse of the 21st century on sustainable change in relation to History and Nature, one of the main concerns of CCP and a matter of reformative intellectual endeavor.
