On July 14, 2023, Senior Landecker Fellow Thomas Arnold is organizing a 24-hour event of philosophy out in the streets of Heidelberg, Germany.
The organizers want to make a new and innovative contribution to science communication and transform Heidelberg’s old town into a center of “lively argumentation culture” for two days, the official program says.
“Especially the [local] students are incredibly interested in this kind of critical, community-directed project,” Thomas shared.
Visitors can expect a colorful philosophical program: the topics will be diverse as the focus will always be on what the passers-by themselves contribute.
