Das Menschenmögliche – Sarah Bakewell auf den Spuren der Humanisten

In the organizer's words:

Those who prefer to make decisions out of responsibility and compassion rather than according to laws and commandments, who find the lives of individuals more interesting than collective visions and who dream of discovering unknown worlds are in the tradition of humanism. With her successful book "The Existentialist Café", British philosopher Sarah Bakewell proved how vividly philosophy can be told. In How to Become Human, she tells of Renaissance humanism and the then new and outrageous idea that human beings are essentially good and free, as well as of the committed thinkers of the 20th century. She shows that we can only become truly human in a world full of relationships, stories, songs and images, and invites us to live and think in a human - happy, free and curious - way.
