Over the last few years, philosophers in Chicago and Copenhagen have had an ongoing conversation about the second person. What does it involve to relate to another as a you? What role does it play in social cognition, self-consciousness, recognition and collective intentionality? How is the second-person form of interpersonal nexus significant for human thought, action and life? With this workshop, we take the conversation to a new level and aim to facilitate conversation across the traditions.

The workshop is co-organized between the Chicago Center for German Philosophy at the University of Chicago (co-organizers: James Conant, Matthias Haase & Adam Katwan) and the Center for Subjectivity Research at the University of Copenhagen (co-organizers: Dan Zahavi & Julia Zaenker).
