Session 3 : Enlightenment Memories

6.15pm – 7pm

What are the intellectual, cultural and political legacies that shape our contemporary European conscience? Is there a shared memory of the Enlightenment in today’s Europe? Is the concept of cosmopolitanism that was developed at that time still relevant? Are a cosmopolitan democracy, a cosmopolitan education possible?

Speakers include Catriona Seth (Oxford), David Reynolds (Cambridge), Florence Robine (French Ministry for Education), Rotraud von Kulessa (Augsburg University) and Lea Ypi (LSE). Chaired by Catriona Seth (Oxford).
