LMU Munich, 25.-27. April, 2019
The Conference will discuss Eric T. Olson’s thesis that “no account of our identity has yet been proposed that guarantees […] the coincidence of what is important in our identity with the actual conditions of our identity”. The conference aims to develop a conception of a person that is both ontologically and ethically coherent by raising the following questions:
What kind of ontological basis (substances, lives, processes) does most justice to the normative dimension of a person?
How are ontological, subjective and normative dimensions interwoven in the concept of a person?
Does subjectivity meet the requirements of the conception of a person?
How can we understand the intersubjective and normative reality of persons that can be called a “person space”?
Some of the talks have been recorded an can be accessed here.
