Can Universal Values be Re-enchanted?

Referent: Prof. Michel Wieviorka | Moderation: Prof. Dr. Ulrich Beck

16.01.2014 at 18:15 

Universalism has been rejected or criticized in modern societies, both by conservative and reactionary thinkers and by progressive ones, including for example Karl Marx when speaking of "abstract universalism". With the end of colonialism, and even post-colonialism, with the decline of western hegemony, the criticisms and rejection became worldwide and global, associating for instance universalism with various forms of domination or exclusion. Should we finish with universal values, couldn‘t we try and propose new approaches, and rethink them?

Michel Wieviorka ist Professor für Soziologie und Forschungsdirektor an der École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris.
