INTERACT! New Forms of Social Interaction with Intelligent Systems




Plakat Colloqium Digitale Ss 2021 Finalissimo




At this international conference, the focus will be on the role of time as it pertains to a good life. What does it mean in regards to the possibility of a successful life that we live in time, that we are temporal beings (i.e. living in hours, days and years), and that we speak of earlier, simultaneously and later, as well as of the past, present and future? When time is discussed in the context of a practical way of life, it is usually only in two respects: either as the duration of life and thus as the classic problem of its finite nature or as the speed and acceleration that is associated with the modern way of life. However, at least four other issues can be distinguished, too: the way of life (which unit of time is needed and why do we prefer a happy ending?), the use of time (how should we use time?), the arranging of oneself with time (in particular with the constant, irretrievable "flow" of time) and the reference to different time modes (what relationship to past and future do we need in order to live well in the present?).
