Rigmar speaks about modernity in Sussex

RESEARCHER OUTREACH: Erik Ringmar is presenting a paper on "Heidegger on Attention and the Moods of Modernity" at a workshop at Sussex University, Brighton, on 29th October.

The workshop will bring together a range of scholars from International Relations, political and social theory, philosophy and human geography in order to develop a multidisciplinary engagement with Martin Heidegger’s work and to explore its relevance for contemporary International Studies.

But what lies behind the essence of this process? What mode of human existence is brought about by the age of technology and ‘global mobilization’? And is it possible to attempt a unitary interpretation of this age that presents itself as both total and pluralistic?
