The History That We Are

“When I left the auditorium, I was speechless. For a brief moment I felt as if I had a glimpse into the ground and foundation of the world. In my inner being, something was touched that had been asleep for a long time.” That is how one person described the experience of listening to Martin Heidegger present his philosophy in 1929 (Heidegger is one of the most important and controversial philosophers of the 20th century). In this Food for Thought talk professor Ralkowski will present an overview of Heidegger’s philosophy of education and try to make sense of what Heideggar meant when he said that the history of metaphysics is “the history that we are.”

How do states interact in an anarchic world? Since the middle of the twentieth century, ‘realism’ has emerged as the dominant interpretation, where states are regarded as fundamentally power-driven. ‘Realists’ model their understanding of international relations on the works of Thomas Hobbes, who has been advanced as the major international anarchist. But how accurate is this marriage of Hobbes and ‘realism’? In reconstructing Hobbes’ own view of the international domain, this talk argues for a divorce of Hobbes and ‘realism’.
