Am 19. Oktober 2020 startet mit einem virtuellen Seminar Artificial Intelligence and the Human die Arbeit des "Institute for Philosophy and the New Humanities" an der New School for Social Research, New York.

The Institute for Philosophy and the New Humanities convenes graduate students and distinguished scholars from The New School, the University of Bonn (Germany), and other institutions for intensive five-day seminars on pressing questions in contemporary philosophy and the humanities. Seminars run during the fall semester, with additional seminar work in the spring.
