The World Spirit in the Mediterranean of the 19th Century. Hegel in Italy, Spain, Greece

03.12.2018 - 04.12.2018

International Conference
Venue: Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, Jägerstraße 22/23, Einstein-Hall, 10117 Berlin
Admission Free. Registration until 02.12.2018 at: www.bbaw.de/hegel

The conference aims to examine Hegel’s reception in the comparative context of nineteenth century European Mediterranean countries against the background of their respective historical developments. In the course of the complex processes by which their national, political and cultural identities were redefined, the transmission of Hegel’s philosophy and its criticism played a substantial part in the shaping of national philosophical landscapes and of corresponding political ideas, aesthetic views and literary forms. Retracing the path of Hegelian concepts, with its twists and turns, from Berlin to the Italian, the Spanish and the Greek cultural space, should shed light not only on their development, but also on the universal claims of the World Spirit itself.

The international Conference "The World Spirit in the Mediterranean of the 19th Century. Hegel in Italy, Spain, Greece" is organised by the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science and Humanities within the framework of the long-term project "Schleiermacher in Berlin, 1808-1834. Correspondence, Calendar, Lectures" and in cooperation with the Center for Modern Greece (CeMoG) of Freie Universität Berlin as part of the project "Viaggio da Berlino a Zante".
