This existential approach is also significant for the political sphere. Phenomena such as exile, revolution and war, the uprooting and social alienation of individuals, or the shaking of religious belief designate an experience of loss of ground and therefore urge us to question the meaning of existence. This workshop wants to explore the current importance of these ideas with reference to Patočka and related thinkers.
