What can we believe any more? The great evening on enlightenment today? With Jördis Triebel, Lars Rudoph, Mathias Greffrath, Annette Schavan, Michael Hampe, Quichotte Music: Mike Herting


In 1774, the French enlightenment philosopher Denis Diderot wrote a highly amusing yet extremely dangerous tract: a conversation between a pious Catholic woman and an atheist philosopher on the meaning of religion. If there is no god, is everything permitted? For a long time, philosophers considered this question moot, viewing religion as simply either meaningless or dangerous. A relic from pre-enlightened times. Today, on the other hand, we are not the only ones to speak of a resurgence of religion. Do we need a new enlightenment? Is there a place for faith in an enlightened life? Jördis Triebel and Lars Rudolph read Diderot, Mathias Greffrath talks about the greatest genius of the European enlightenment, and Annette Schavan and Michael Hampe debate on god and the world.
