Det transdyriske exmenneskes fornuftsantropologi

The Centre for Medical Science and Technology Studies, University of Copenhagen, is happy to announce that Ronald Stade will give a public lecture
April 20, 2012, from 10:00 until 12:00
at the Section for Health Services Research, Øster Farimagsgade 5, building 5, room 5.2.46. Everybody is welcome.
Ronald Stade’s lecture is titled
“Still human?
On the condition and limits
of anthropos today”

and takes departure in the question of what it means to be human today, in a world characterized by what Paul Rabinow called “various logoi currently being assembled into contingent forms.” Drawing on classical philosophy as well as more recent thoughts in trans- and post-humanism the lecture will engage specifically with the animate-inanimate continuum and the essence-existence distinction.

Ronald Stade is Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies and Anthropology at Malmö University and has worked amongst other things on philosophical anthropology, images of the human, cosmopolitanism, and organized violence. His most recent publications include, “Cosmos and polis, past and present.” Theory, Culture and Society 24(7-8): 295-298, 2007; and “Citizens of everything: the aporetics of cosmopolitanism.” In Cosmopolitanism, existentialism and morality: anthropological perspectives, edited by Lisette Josephides and Alexandra Hall. Oxford and New York: Berghahn, forthcoming.
