    Philosophical Approaches in Education
    With Sinan von Stietencron, artist, philosopher and trainer (Nantesbuch Foundation for Art and Nature; Academy of Philosophical Education and the Dialogue of Values, Munich)

    DATES:
    Mon, Nov. 30, 6-7:30 pm
    Introductory Presentation: How to Deal with the Question “What is Nature?”

    Mon, Dec. 7, 6-7:30 pm 
    Introductory Presentation and Exercise: Philosophy and Aesthetic Research in Education 

    The question “What is Nature?” opens the door to fundamental considerations on the relationship between humankind and the world, inspiring both adults and children to do their own thinking and research. A philosophizing approach opens space for one’s own questions and answers, and thus for creative approaches in education. During the first event, facets of the term “nature” are examined. The following week, these approaches are further explored and applied. 

    Free admission, registration required (by Nov. 20):

    What is Nature?
    Searching the Frankfurt Airport
    Conversation with the historian of science Nils Güttler (ETH Zurich) and the ornithologist Bernd Petri (NABU).
    Introduction: Kathrin Meyer, Director of the Museum Sinclair-Haus
    Moderator: Regina Oehler, science journalist

    Date: Thu, Dec. 10, 7:30 pm

    In early December, the publication accompanying the exhibition “What is Nature?” is scheduled for release, featuring contributions from academia, the arts and literature. Scientific texts and literary excerpts explore the question “What is Nature?”, in search of new concepts of nature and the role of humankind. Kathrin Meyer (Director of the Museum Sinclair-Haus) will present the book accompanying the exhibition in this video conference. Afterwards, the historian of science Nils Güttler and the ornithologist Bernd Petri will discuss the relationship between nature, culture and technology, using the Frankfurt Airport as an example. For several years, the historian of science Nils Güttler has been examining the historical and current co-existence of humans, plants and animals in the natural and cultural area of the Frankfurt Airport (he has also contributed to the publication accompanying the exhibition). Bernd Petri is an expert for ecological questions in this field, especially as concerns birds. He is a passionate soundscaper and has contributed sound recordings to the exhibition “What is Nature?”. This event, which takes place as a video conference, will be moderated by Regina Oehler.

    Live: Philosophical Wanderings

    The traditional format with Dr. Stefan Scholz, Catholic Academy Rabanus Maurus, Frankfurt

    Dates: Thu, Jan. 1st, 2021, at 5 and 6 pm 

    Location: Museum Sinclair-Haus, Bad Homburg v.d.H.

    The term “nature” is derived from the Latin nasci, being born. To this day, humanism is considered the birth of the humanities. The position of post-humanism suspects that this very focus on humankind is one of the main reasons so many of us today have forgotten nature. Transhumanism considers human beings a symbiosis of nature, culture and technology. The irritation about what is nature reflects a certain self-induced human madness. A philosophical treasure hunt with Dr. Stefan Scholz.
