Christian Benne, Kopenhagen: “Thinking with texts. Literary studies and/as/of philosophy" (Tysk fredag)

Christian Benne’s inaugural lecture as full professor of European Literature and Intellectual History (with a focus on German) at The University of Copenhagen argues both historically and systematically for a closer relationship between literary studies and philosophy.

It envisions literary philosophy as a major contribution to contemporary debates on the future and relevance of the humanities by highlighting its critical potential vis à vis disciplinary and conceptual boundaries.
