Refashioning Worlds: Nature, Science, and the Human in the Thought of Hannah Arendt (Workshop)

What is the human being today? Do we need to rethink who we are in order to respond to the unprecedented threats posed by environmental and scientific change? This workshop examines how Hannah Arendt’s thought can open up new horizons for addressing humanity’s relationship to nature and science.

Featuring talks by Laura Ephraim (Williams College), Ari-Elmeri Hyvönen (University of Jyväskylä), and Lexi Neame (Stanford University).
