Georg Simmel claimed that there is a direct connection between money and personal independence. Money make us “more determined” persons and free us from any relation of dependency from others. What kind of independence is mean by Simmel? And how does it relate to the concept of moral autonomy? A. Pinzani will present and discuss with M. Hrubec a multilayered concept of autonomy that might help us to better understanding Simmel’s thesis and to discuss its actuality under the concrete conditions of modern society as formulated first by Smith and Hegel and in present days by social philosophers such as Honneth as well as by liberal thinkers such as Sen.
Everyone is warmly welcome not only to participate in the audience, but also to take part in the discussions.
