Seminar Series on Philosophy - Crisis and Critique II

Guest: Ferda Keskin

“Historical Ontology as Critique”

Historical ontology aims to show that boundaries are historically established. Considering that they define limits to human action in terms of belonging conditions, the evaluation of identities within the framework of these modalities carries the discussion to an ethical and political dimension on the axis of freedom. Thus, it becomes not only a theoretical but also a practical question whether the historical and unenforceable limits need to be crossed and, if so, the forms in which they can be crossed. In this talk, we will discuss the above questions in the context of modern political philosophy and ethics.

Ferda Keskin received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Columbia University, and he taught at Boğaziçi University from 1994 to 2002. He is currently teaching in the Comparative Literature Department of Istanbul Bilgi University, where he directed the MA in Cultural Studies Graduate Program from 2003 to 2006, founded the BA in Political Economy and Social Philosophy Program and the MA in Philosophy and Social Thought Program. Her served as the Chair of the International Association for Cultural Studies from 2008 to 2010. His research and interest areas include Foucault, social and political philosophy, ethics, philosophy of social sciences, and philosophy and literature.

This seminar is for free. Participation is limited to 120 people and the entrance invitations can be obtained 1 hour before the event from Akbank Sanat Info Desk. Events will be held in Turkish.
