Hegel’s Anthropology marks a critical turning point in the history of the philosophical question ‘What is it to be human?’, and it raises methodological and philosophical issues that are still of relevance in today’s scientific landscape. This event is devoted to the rediscovery and close analysis of this important text that has long been neglected, even in the Hegel-studies. Through close reading and joint discussion of the work, performed by a group of selected, highly renowned specialists, the symposium will excavate the philosophical potential of Hegel’s work and actualize its value for current philosophical concerns in various areas. At 250th years from the birth of Hegel, this event aims to bring his Anthropology back on the current philosophical agenda
