Wir sind wieder da!

Our “Wir sind wieder da!” series concludes with a different event on Monday 15 April. For our fifth and final event we are joined by artist and curator Androula Kafa, as well as academic philosopher Dr Christos Hadjioannou, with whom the Goethe-Institut Cyprus is producing a podcast on the occasion of 300 years since the birth of German philosopher Immanuel Kant.

What do you know about Kant? What would Kant think about artificial intelligence? If you are interested in or curious about philosophy, join us for a relaxed discussion and maybe even take part in a fun quiz.

Christos Hadjioannou is a Postdoctoral Researcher in Philosophy at the University of Cyprus, specializing in Post-Kantian Philosophy. He obtained a PhD in Philosophy from Sussex University in 2015. He conducted a part of his doctoral research at Freie Universität Berlin on a DAAD scholarship. He is also a past recipient of the Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship. His most recent edited book is The Routledge Handbook of Phenomenology of Mindfulness, and he is currently writing a monograph on Heidegger and Stoicism (under contract with Palgrave Macmillan).
