Theory Talks provides a forum for research fellows and visiting scholars of the Max Planck Institute to discuss questions relating to legal, political and moral theory. The seminars normally take place once a month, and will include a short introductory talk (15-30 minutes) followed by a general discussion. Each seminar will focus on a new publication, a classic text, a current development, or a work in progress by a fellow or visitor. All are welcome to participate in the discussions.
For previous sessions, please check the archive.
Fellows or visitors wishing to present a piece of work or to suggest a theme for a future edition of Theory Talks are warmly invited to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
