Jeff Malpas: "Topology, Hermeneutics and the Transcendental"

Focusing on the intimate connection between place and understanding, this talk will explore the consequent interconnection between topology and hermeneutics, and in doing so set out an account of the transcendental as both topological and hermeneutical.

New Grant to Kristian Moltke Martiny

PhD graduate from the Center for Subjectivity Research Kristian Moltke Martiny has received a 3-year project grant (2016-2019) from the Elsass Foundation. The aim of the project is to establish a research group at the Elsass Institute, focusing on the psychological and social aspects of cerebral palsy.

The grant includes a shared postdoc position for Kristian between the Center  for Subjectivity Research and the Elsass Institute, two scientific assistants and two PhD positions.

Read an interview with Kristian based on his PhD project, Embodying Investigations of Cerebral Palsy A Case of Open Cognitive Science which led to both a documentary film and a theatre piece.
