Workshop Series


Heidegger und Gadamer

The BPC Workshop Series meets periodically to discuss work by BPC members or visitors under two formats–traditional talks and working group sessions. The working group sessions offer rigorous, constructive feedback on works in progress. The presenter gives a brief outline of the paper (30 min), followed by discussion (60 min). Papers are distributed a week in advance to be read prior to the meeting.
