Interdisciplinary Invited Lectures: "We have always been Cyborgs" provided by Prof. Stefan Lorenz Sorgner, John Cabot University in Roma

Meeting date: 2021-03-19 (Friday), 18.30, Access code: royuw3s (MS Teams)

A non-empirically accessible concept of rationality used to be dominant in the Western philosophical tradition from Plato via the Stoics, and Descartes to Kant. With Darwin and Nietzsche, a paradigm-shift towards a non-dualist understanding of anthropoid was initialized, which lead to a re-interpretation of the concept of rationality which is no longer seen as an immaterial divine spark but rather as an emergent empirically accessible property. Such a reconceptualization of anthropoi has a myriad of implications, as the categorical duality between emotions and rationality no longer applies as a plausible anthropology.
