In early December, a conference on the claims and methods of philosophy will take place at the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School for the Humanities Cologne. It brings together experts from analytic, phenomenological, and historical perspectives and asks about the different ways in which philosophy is done and what it can achieve.
From November 6–9, 2019, we are organising a conference on the “Cologne Constellation” of Philosophical Anthropology, thereby critically assessing the relevance of the works of Max Scheler, Helmuth Plessner, and Nicolai Hartmann for our understanding of the human being and the methodology of an interdisciplinary anthropology today.

The German Research Foundation (DFG) has granted us funding for the Research Unit “Resilience in Religion and Spirituality“, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Cornelia Richter at the University of Bonn. I am extremely happy to be part of this group with a project on “Resilience and Empathy”.
