Die Entfesselung der moralischen Energie. Selbstverwirklichung und Fremdbestimmung im Staat und im Geiste bei Wilhelm von Humboldt

Activity: Supervision / Examination PHDPhD supervision at external institution


In his PhD-thesis, submitted in 2023, Nahyan Niazi develops a new reading of Humboldts the political philosophy by setting it apart from the liberalism of both Locke and Hayek. He bases this political (and to some extent egalitarian) liberalism on a re-reading of the ethics of flourishing, which demands a political embedding.
