Seminar: The Geography of Good and Evil

5. März 2020 | 12:30 - 16:30



The Geography of Good and Evil

Prof. Andreas Kinneging

From the back cover:

Do good and evil exist? Absolutely.

In this bracing book, the eminent Dutch philosopher Andreas Kinneging turns fashionable thinking on its head, revealing how good and evil are objective, universal, and unchanging – and how they must be rediscovered in our age.

At a time when the traditional virtues have practically disappeared from our language (that is, all but one – “tolerance”), Kinneging lays out the foundations of virtue and vice. He reveals the lasting significance of these seemingly archaic notions – to our own lives, to our families, to our culture, and to civilization.


Andreas Kinneging, a professor of legal philosophy at the University of Leiden (Netherlands), was awarded the Socrates prize in 2006 for the best Dutch book in the field of philosophy.


In collaboration with ‘The Vienna Symposium’ and The European Conservative, the Hayek Institut is proud to welcome Professor Kinneging to Vienna to conduct a seminar on his Geography of Good and Evil.

There is no cost for participation in the seminar. Please be punctual, so we may start on time. As this is not a lecture or a presentation but rather a Socratic seminar, all participants are expected to have read the entire book — and are expected to take part in the discussion. The seminar will be held in English.

Please register for this seminar. Upon receipt of your registration, the PDF of the book will be sent to you so you may begin reading.


During the break we will serve refreshments.

We look forward to a lively discussion!
