Forskare/lärare

  • Robert Bernasconi (9–20 april)
    Robert Bernasconi is Edwin Earle Sparks Professor of Philosophy at Penn State University. In addition to extensive work on Heidegger and Levinas, he has written on Kant, Hegel, Arendt, Gadamer, Sartre, Fanon, Derrida, and numerous others. In the early 1990s, Bernasconi began to develop an interest in the concepts of race and racism, particularly in relation to the history of philosophy, including African philosophy. He has edited and published extensively on these themes. Currently, he is working on a book that addresses the failure of most seventeenth and eighteenth century philosophers to engage with the evils of the slave trade. In Uppsala, he will give two public talks on race and philosophy and a seminar series on Levinas.

He has published widely on philosophical issues relating to film, photography, performance, music, literature, and visual art, and on issues in metaphysics, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language.
