Deep Talk with Siri Hustvedt- How to be Human

Siri Hustvedt is one of the most important contemporary American authors. She writes novels, essays and also researches neuroscience and psychoanalysis.

Philosopher Martin Ebeling will discuss important themes in her writing and research: What is the human being? What is thinking? What is the relationship between body and mind? What is at the core of who we are, even if we change in the course of life? How do male and female perspectives and thought patterns differ? And of course we also want to hear from her, who has been married to Paul Auster for almost 40 years, what the special challenges of a “writer couple” are and how the two of them overcame them.

The event is held in English.
