The process that transformed nature into natural resource also transformed human beings into citizens. Our world is shaped by that experience. How do we reimagine our inquiries and practices (our sciences and our politics)?
We engage Akeel Bilgrami’s recent work on these themes to explore the possibilities of re-enchanting life. The workshop is envisaged as a participatory event in which the audience is as crucial as the speakers.

Morning: “Evolving a Triangulation”
-- Department of Philosophy, Columbia University

Afternoon: “Nature, Science and the Unalienated Life”
Opening comments on Akeel Bilgrami’s work by Vivek Dhareshwar and Lata Mani to be followed by collective discussion
