Research stay at UC3M: DEPARTMENT OF HUMANITIES: PHILOSOPHY, LANGUAGE, LITERATURE THEORY / RESEARCH GROUP ON LAW AND JUSTICE (GIDYJ)
Project: While freedom is without a doubt a key principle of modernity, the term is more multifaceted than usually conceived. My aim is to spell out this multifacetedness in detail and to investigate for every major facet arising difficulties, maybe even aporias and tipping points. For example: While the welfare state brings about a realisation of freedom, it also limits this freedom through various governmental rules and regulations, including bureaucracies.
Even though the project focuses a systematic problem, it nonetheless takes account of the classical theorists of freedom such as Rousseau, Locke and Kant, as well as Hegel, and also addresses contemporary debates. While the project is quite broadly based, it should nevertheless be realisable due to my previous research on that subject.
Stay Period: FEB 13 - JUN 13
