September 27: Socialist Humanism recordings

Lecturer(s)
Date
27-09-2011

"To answer questions about values, human nature and material needs it is necessary to formulate a vision on what it means to be human, and on the development of human society. Instead of leading to constrictions on human freedom such a vision can give direction to human life and to new possibilities to change our lives. This was the theme of the lecture: 'The meaning and relevance of a socialist humanism' by the German historian and publicist Christoph Jünke.

Christoph Jünke is chairperson of the Leo Kofler-Gesellschaft and writer of 'Sozialistisches Strandgut', a biography of the German Marxist anthropologist Leo Kofler and 'Der lange Schatten des Stalinismus. Sozialismus und Demokratie gestern und heute'. He works at the Fernuniversität in Hagen."
