workshop: “from a historical point of view” Event Location: Ghent, Belgium Sponsor(s)/Host Institution(s): University of Ghent Event Web Site: (“news”) Event Date: 01/20/2009

Additional Information: In this one-day workshop, we will go in search of what it means to think historically. The historical point of view is not the exclusive property of historiography, but it is also present in an array of different disciplines. Arguably, the historical point of view has had its most profound influence in philosophy. This workshop will confront historians with a theoretical interest with philosophers with a historical interest, in order to thematize the elements which unite researchers from different disciplines who think historically.

Although this workshop is aimed in the first place at historians and philosophers from the low countries, it should also prove useful to a more international audience and to researchers from other disciplines. Speakers: -Ed Jonker (Universiteit Utrecht) -Herman Paul (Universitiet Leiden -Eric Schliesser (Universiteit Leiden) – Gertrudis Van De Vijver (UGent) & Helena De Preester (Hogent)
