The watchful role of the eye is crucial in science and politics. A critical, scrutinising public shouldn’t be viewed with suspicion. The public eye, however, is not an abstraction. It is neither aloof nor independent, but rather involved, empathic and flexible, and searching for a new perspective. This will be the central premise of Huub Dijstelbloem’s inaugural lecture as professor of Philosophy of Science and Politics.
H.O. Dijstelbloem, professor of Philosophy of Science and Politics: 'The public eye as private detective' (Het publieke oog als privédetective).
This event is open to the public.
(Please note: this inaugural lecture will be held in Dutch.)
