Where: Vrije Universiteit, De Boelelaan, room HG-1B02/04 (main building VU)
In his essay, Krijnen defends the thesis that the one and only subject matter of philosophy is the absolute. He shows that the absolute can be cognized, what its basic determinations are and how the world we live in can be comprehended as its actualization. Four speakers respond to the book.
