There is no shortage of interpretations of our current time. What they have in common is that they each emphasise an allegedly dominant feature of our time, such as acceleration (Hartmut Rosa) or singularity (Andreas Reckwitz) this lecture will put the different phenomena of our current political, economic, juridical, sociodemographic, and technical developments into relation from the perspective of dissolution of boundaries and explore comprehension in their contradictions.

Prof. Dr. Karsten Fischer

Professor Karsten Fischer has held the chair of political theory at the Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich since 2010. He has studied political science, philosophy and international law in Bonn and Frankfurt/Main. His doctorate and habilitation at the Humboldt University in Berlin were supervised by Herfried Münkler. Fischer was a research coordinator of the working group “Gemeinwohl und Gemeinsinn" at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities and research assistant at the Humboldt University.

His most recent publications are "Die Zukunft einer Provokation. Religion im liberalen Staat" (2009) and (as editor, joined with Sebastian Huhnholz) "Liberalismus. Traditionsbestände und Gegenwartskontroversen" (2019).
