Merely Expressive Actions
The Philosophy and Art History Research Seminar meets weekly in term on Thursday afternoons to discuss a paper by a visiting philosopher, art historian, or a member of our academic staff.
This week's speaker is Essex philosopher Professor Fabian Freyenhagen.
Fabian completed his PhD in philosophy at the University of Sheffield before going on hold a teaching position there. He has since taught at the University of Cambridge before joining our School of Philosophy and Art History here at Essex. Fabian's primary research interests concern Critical Theory and the notion of social pathology, autonomy and its (social) conditions, and contemporary ethics. This week he discusses "merely expressive actions".
The seminar will be followed by informal drinks at Top Bar and a meal.
