9th International French-German Philosophy Colloquium

9me colloque philosophique international franco-allemand

9. Internationales Franzsisch-Deutsches Philosophie-Kolloquium

What is a human being?

Qu\'est-ce que l\'homme?

Was ist der Mensch?

Evian (Lake Geneva / Lac Leman / Genfer See), France

July / Juillet / Juli 13-19, 2003.

The goal of the International French-German Philosophy Colloquium is

to bring Continental philosophy, and in particular contemporary French

philosophy, into dialogue with other philosophical traditions. The

colloquium aims at the greatest possible diversity with respect to the

native languages and intellectual backgrounds of participants.

This year\'s topic, \"What is a human being?\", seems particularly suited


achieve this goal. Indeed, it is not only according to Kant that the

question of the human being is regarded as the most essential question

that lies behind all other philosophical questions. It can be read as


driving force behind many of the most important philosophical movements


the 20th century and as a hidden connection between them. The question

even drives those currents in contemporary philosophy that have


called into question the concept of the human being and have pleaded


its abolition. The colloquium invites participants to pose the question


the human being once again and to debate its relevance for today\'s
