When/Where: Bremen (GER), 13 september 2017

Topics: Does truth in politics necessarily lose its importance? Or are there different ‘kinds’ of politics, whereby in some truth plays a central role, while in others it is sidelined by an effort to reach and attain power? Alternatively, should the relationship be approached through exploring the concept of truth, instead of politics, possibly revealing that objective truths are unreachable in the societal world and to a lesser or greater extent depend on interactions between and interpretations of the actors involved?
The analysis of the role of truth in politics lies at the heart of any endeavour about the meaning(s) of politics.
