Professor Ursula Renz (Klagenfurt) – Self-Knowledge as a Personal Achievement
Ursula Renz is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria, where she teaches classes in both Theoretical Philosophy (epistemology, metaphysics and philosophy) and Early Modern Philosophy. She has published widely on Early Modern Philosophy (Descartes, Hobbes, Spinoza, Shaftesbury), Kant, the Marburg School of Neo-Kantianism (Cohen, Natorp, Cassirer), as well as on the emotions, self-knowledge, and the problem of epistemic trust. In her talk, she will address a few philosophical problems of which she became aware of during her work for the edited volume Self-Knowledge: A History (OUP 2017).
