The Schemel Forum Course- Moral Citizenship - The Enlightenment Vision of the Ethical Community

Other Dates For This Event:

Thursday, 03 February, 2022

What does it mean to be a citizen? Upon what basis can it be said that we have an obligation to the common good? In order to answer these perennial questions in political philosophy, we will examine a vision of society put forward in the Enlightenment--the vision of the ethical community. We will explore the ideas of four central Enlightenment figures: Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Immanuel Kant, Johann Fichte and Georg Hegel, paying particular attention to their views on how moral principles inform their political ideologies.

Christopher E. Fremaux, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Philosophy, The University of Scranton
