Models br Lecture Series 2022-23

Lecture Series 2022-23

A model can be an object of admiration, a miniature or a prototype, an abstracted phenomenon or applied theory, a literary text — practically anything from a human body on a catwalk to a mathematical description of a system. It can elicit desire, provide understanding, guide action or thought. Despite the polysemy of the term, models across disciplines and fields share a fundamental characteristic: their effect depends on a specific relational quality. A model is always a model of or for something else, and the relation is reductive insofar as it is selective and considers only certain aspects of both object and model.

Psychoanalytische Kulturwissenschaft
Lecture Series 2022-23

The lecture series ‘Psychoanalytic and Cultural Theory’ devotes itself to the influence of psychoanalysis on cultural theories at large as well as to particularly poignant applications of psychoanalytical research to current cultural phenomena. The central psychoanalytic concepts of Freud and his successors are to be taken up in an open and non-partisan fashion and applied to the cultural, political, and economic phenomena encountered today.

The lecture series is a cooperation of the Berlin Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (BiPP), the Cultural Science Institute of the Humboldt University Berlin, the International Psychoanalytic University (IPU), and the ICI Berlin, organized by Wilhelm Brüggen (BIPP), Monika Englisch (BIPP) and Andreas Gehrlach (HU Berlin)

Philosophical Perspectives on the Anthropocene

Conference, 20-21 Oct 2022, 10:00

It is obvious that human forms of life have affected the earth system to such an extent that one has to consider the possibility that a new geological age has emerged. More importantly, the severe changes underway in this new age, often called the ‘Anthropocene’, seem to undermine the very conditions of survival on this planet.

Discussion, 25 Oct 2022, 19:00

Das Glück der Sprachen ist keine allgemeine oder unmittelbare menschliche Erfahrung. Wenn man nicht verstanden wird oder den anderen nicht versteht, weil es so viele verschiedene Sprachen gibt, lässt einen das eher verzweifeln.
