A philosophical symposium with work and work in progress by international scholars and thinkers

Cara Judea Alhadeff, John Calvelli, Balz Isler, Deneige Nadeau, Peter Price, Dennis Schep


Interventions is an informal and open symposium that allows scholars and thinkers to present their recently finished work and their work in progress. Interventions thrives on the unexpected juxtapositions and clashes that result from addressing a wide range of philosophical and political issues such as autonomy, economy, finitude, aporias, capitalism, and many more. Interventions does not limit itself to a specific discipline and welcomes all intriguing papers from Switzerland and abroad.
