|Professor Matthias Kettner|
On Friday, I had the opportunity to concentrate on listening to talks by others and participating in discussions. The day was opened by Hartmut Rosa’s invited lecture “Pathological Potentials of Dynamic Societal Stabilization”. The programme continued with parallel sessions, and I attended a round table session on “Institutional Transfers and Social Pathologies”. The discussion by Joachim Zweynert (Chair), Elsje Fourie, Robbert Maseland, and Valentin Seidler resonated strongly with the Honnethian theme of a formal conception of the good life, which tries to abstract from any substantive cultural values. During the lunch break, a meeting chaired by Professor Kettner was held on forming a research network of interested people around the themes of the conference. The third invited lecture of the conference was then given by Rasmus Johnsen, whose topic was “Chronopathic Feelings: Time Pressure and the Pathologies of Contemporary Work-Life”. After the talk, Kettner and Sauerland presented a recapitulation and farewell for the conference.
