Mandel Scholion’s 2023-2026 Research Group

3 January, 2022

We are happy to introduce the research group for the years 2023-2026, “Passivities: Modes of Feeling, Modes of Knowing,” led by Prof. Ruben Borg, Prof. Raz Chen-Morris, Dr. Lola Kantor-Kazovsky and Dr. Gur Zak. The group seeks to reexamine the notion of passivity from two angles, one historical, focusing on early modern Europe as a transitional phase; and the other, critical and philosophical, examining the notion of passivity from a phenomenological point of view.
