The Case for Future-Oriented Humanities.

Markus Gabriel and Anna Katsman from THE NEW INSTITUTE in Hamburg present the discussion paper \"Towards a New Enlightenment\" (published by transcript). The conversation will be hosted by Peter Neumann (DIE ZEIT).

What role can the humanities play in shaping our common future? What are the values that guide us in the 21st century? How can we unleash the potential the humanities offer in a time of multiple crises? This volume tackles some of these fundamental questions, acknowledging and developing the changing role of academic discourse in a turbulent world. This timely book argues that the humanities engender conceptual tools that are capable of reconciling theory and practice.
