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.

And is it possible to attempt a unitary interpretation of this age that presents itself as both total and pluralistic?
