Prof. Segev taught the seminar “Religionsphilosophie: Universalismus und Partikularismus”, which was aimed to give students an overview of significant religious philosophical and theological positions on universalism and particularism in the context of Christianity and Judaism. In the seminar a special focus was put on the examination of well-known religious-philosophical and theological texts of modernity, written by prominent theologians of various traditions and denominations.
Prof. Segev authored several books including “Thinking and Killing” in 2013 and “Political Readings of Descartes in Continental Thought” in 2019. Moreover, he is also a foremost expert in philosophy of religion and hence, he was able to make an important contribution to the research area “Practical Philosophy” at the University of Innsbruck.
Prof. Andreas Oberprantacher from the Department of Philosophy, Prof. Wolfgang Palaver from the Department of Systematic Theology, as well as a good number of interested students, were delighted to have Prof. Alon Segev as a lecturer at the University of Innsbruck.
His stay was supported by the city of Innsbruck!
