Remmon Barbaza interviewed in the Netherlands on ethics

August 30, 2017

Remmon Barbaza is an Associate Professor of Philosophy specializing in Heidegger and language at the Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippines, where he also served as chair of the Department of Philosophy. He is currently working on a translation of Heidegger’s texts into Filipino and an interdisciplinary research project on human dwelling in a disaster-prone city.  His work in philosophy extends to questions of technology, the city, and the natural environment.
 
Barbaza was a local 4TU.Ethics visiting scholar at University of Twente in July 2017, where 4TU intern Stephen Leitheiser got a chance to sit down with him and discuss his work. The conversation focuses on what insights Heidegger and the philosophy of language can give us about the philosophy of nature and the state of the modern city.
