Symposium organised by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), the Praemium Erasmianum Foundation and the Huizinga Institute Graduate School for Cultural History.


Vanwege een technisch probleem begint de lezing, en dus ook de livestream, om 10.45 uur.

For more than fifty years, the German philosopher Jürgen Habermas has been one of the leading thinkers in the fields of philosophy, sociology, and politics. Central to his thinking are deliberative democracy and commitment of citizens. He believes in open rational debate as a vital resource of politics and in the equality of all human beings as a foundational value underpinning democracy. Critical about the way political elites are dealing with the European crisis, driven by unrestrained financial markets, Habermas pleads for a more fully integrated, democratic European Union.

Juergen Habermas

This symposium is organised on the occasion of the Erasmus Prize 2013 that will be awarded to Jürgen Habermas on Wednesday 6 November. The symposium offers a select group of invited Research Master students and PhD researchers an opportunity to enter into discussion with Jürgen Habermas and other speakers, on a range of philosophical, historical, sociological and political topics. The idea is that this dialogue will be fuelled by on-going research of the students and PhD researchers.

Participants are welcome to attend the discussion of Jürgen Habermas with the other speakers and the Research Master students and PhD researchers.
