The Kant glass and Kant’s friends from Hull

Virtual Table Talk (Tischgesellschaft) on March 16, 2021


The historical background of the rarely-mentioned “Kant glass” from 1763 is exciting new territory, even for experts on Kant. Simon Wain-Hobson, a renowned researcher at the Pasteur Institute in Paris and also a recognized collector of historical glasses, will join us along with historian David Neave, Emeritus of the University of Hull, to explore this new territory

on March 16, 2021 (Tuesday) at 7:00 p.m. CET (login beginning at 6:30 p.m. CET).

This event will be a premiere in another respect as well, since it will be our first virtual Table Talk (Tischgesellschaft) in English. In addition to our members, we welcome all who are interested to join us as guests. If you would like more information on this topic even before the session, please visit our website to see the recently uploaded article "The Königsberg Kant Glass“ by Simon Wain-Hobson.
