Ariadne Pfad:


Rousseau 300: Nature, Self and State : Conference & Opera

19.04.2012, 13:00 Uhr - 21.04.2012, 19:00 Uhr

London Link

2012 sees the tercentenary of the birth of Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), one of the most influential, best known, but perhaps little understood European authors of all times. Champion of the Enlightenment and beacon of Romanticism, an ancestor of radical revolutionaries and totalitarian dictators alike, inventor of modern notions of the self and advocate of ancient republicanism: Rousseau has been cast in all these roles and many more. Under the title Rousseau 300: Nature, Self, and State, the UCL History Department has organised a series of events aimed at a comprehensive re-evaluation of Rousseau`s enduring legacy after 300 years. These include an exhibition at the UCL Art Museum (9 January ¬Ė 27 April 2012), a rare performance of an opera written and composed by Rousseau, Le Devin du Village (20 April 2012), and an international conference (19-21 April 2012). Participants include Axel Honneth (Frankfurt), Quentin Skinner (Queen Mary), and Philip Pettit (Princeton).
