An Evening for and with Charles Taylor in Celebration of his 90th Birthday
Social and Networking Events

Charles Taylor, one of the outstanding philosophers of our age, turned 90 on November 5, 2021. Taylor has been closely associated with the Institute for Human Sciences for more than three decades. His life and work have always been inseparably bound up with one another. He is a scholar, a committed citizen, and a public intellectual. Many researchers owe him an immense debt of gratitude for being the intellectual inspiration behind their own work and, most importantly, for his generosity and charming esprit. Rajeev Bhargava and Hartmut Rosa, two of Taylor’s long time intellectual companions, honored his work and personality.
