Force of Things. Things, Gegenstände, and Objects in Phenomenology
International Conference of the German Society for Phenomenological Research at the Institute for Cultural History and Theory / Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin


The conference aims at a critical engagement of classical and current Phenomenology with the diverse philosophical traditions, which are linked to terms such as “chrêma“, “prâgma“, “res“, “thing“, “Gegenstand“, “object“, and “artifact“. Thus, it intends to highlight the originality of the various phenomenological notions of the Thing. The assumption is that the inquiry into the notion of the Thing provides a paradigmatic approach to Phenomenology as one of the most relevant philosophical currents of the 20th and 21st century.
