Essays in Honour of Helge Høibraaten

Editors: Kjartan Koch Mikalsen, Erling Skjei and Audun Øfsti

This collection of essays is a tribute to Helge Høibraaten published on the occasion of his 70th birthday and retire­ment from his position as professor of philosophy at Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

Theory of modern society and culture has been central in Høibraaten’s research, but his intellectual interests are far-reaching and cover many fields within and beyond philosophy. The 26 essays in this book address some of these manifold and diverse topics. In addition to essays on theory of society, the collection contains essays on ­political and legal philosophy, metaphysics, ethics, aesthetics, modernist culture, traditions of memory and remembrance, and philosophy of pedagogy.
