Kant – A Racist? – Cengiz Barskanmaz discusses with experts

December 16, 2020

In the first part of the discussion series "Kant – A Racist?", co-organized by the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, a panel of experts, including Cengiz Barskanmaz from the Department "Law & Anthropology" at the MPI, discusses whether Kant's writings about non-European peoples and people should be considered racist. In his lecture, Barskanmaz examines whether Kant's statements should be regarded today as an attack on human dignity and would thus be liable to charges under criminal law, or whether they are protected by the fundamental right of freedom of expression.
