Landecker Fellow Thomas Arnold discusses Philosophy and Laziness



On September 28, 2021, Landecker Fellow Dr. Thomas Arnold joins Dr. Tobias Keiling and Prof. Dr. Annika Schlitte in a conversation about laziness, work and the meaning of life.

“Laziness, leisure and serenity have always been topics of philosophy,” the program explains, as the philosophers will question whether laziness became the new virtue.

The lecture is part of the the Praktisch Philosophie! series of the DAI Heidelberg Cultural Center. For more information, follow this link.

Thomas is one of thirty Landecker Democracy Fellows. This Fellowship, a collaboration between the Alfred Landecker Foundation and Humanity in Action, was created to strengthen a new generation of leaders whose approaches to political and social challenges can become catalysts for democratic placemaking and community building.
