Tuesday 11 June, 9 for 9.30am to 5.00pm
The work of 20th century German philosopher, Martin Heidegger, had a profound impact on French thought from the 1930s onwards in various fields, especially in the field of phenomenology, but including also movements such as existentialism, psychoanalysis, and deconstruction, and applications to the philosophy of religion and environmental philosophy. His influence, whether directly or through mediated form, continues to this day. The speakers at this workshop will explore various aspects of this influence, examining the Heideggerian legacy in the work of key contemporary French thinkers.
