Conference Hegel-Marx: “dead dogs” still live, 9-10 April 2019
9-10 April 2019
Faculty of Letters of the University of Lisbon
Keynote Speakers: Klaus Vieweg (Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena); others to be announced.
The conference Hegel-Marx: “dead dogs” still live will take place between two important dates: the celebration of Karl Marx’s 200th birthday (1818-2018) and Georg W. F. Hegel’s 250th birthday (1770-2020). The purpose of the event is to create a forum for debating the work of these two authors and their complex relationship. Accordingly, the discussion will focus on Hegel’s and Marx’s texts, but also on the contributions of various interpreters and critics, in order to bring out the importance and the topicality of a central debate in the history of modern and contemporary thought.
