Friedrich Schleiermacher’s notion of humanity brought together diverse elements. The essays in this conference transcript focus particularly on the subjective dimensions of individual life, as symbolized by the concept of the soul. Interdisciplinary contributors examine a broad range of self-relationships around the key tropes of Bildung, piety, and aesthetics, and explore their relevance to our times.
