Symposium: Religious Philosophy Between Humanism and Posthumanism

During this two-day symposium, co-organized by Institute for Philosophical Studies, ZRS Koper and Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Groningen, the invited scholars explore and question the ways in which religion or secularism are (said to be) relevant for rethinking human-environment and human-machine relationships. The speakers are approaching the topic from notably different disciplinary angles (philosophy, theology, literary studies and history of ideas), which enables a unique cross-disciplinary conversation.
