Charles Taylor lecture series – Philip Pettit lecture Part One : ‘Persons’

September 19, 2019 @ 16:00 - 18:00

Among the many different accounts of personhood, that which links it with the activity of personation, as Hobbes called it, has a particular claim on our allegiance. It explains why we ascribe certain distinctive capacities to persons. And it enables us to vindicate the ways in which Charles Taylor connects being a person with interacting with others, operating within language and constructing a narrative of the self.
