Though more than 300 years of life separate Ibn Khaldun (d, 1496) and Giambattista Vico (d. 1744), the content of their writings is closely related. At the workshop, about twenty international participants will discuss the juridical, historiographical, and philosophical writings of Vico and Khaldun from a comparative and transregional perspective.

Concept: Islam Dayeh (Koordinator Zukunftsphilologie, Freie Universität Berlin), Elisabetta Benigni (Universität Turin),  Markus Messling (Universität Potsdam/beide Kollegium Zukunftsphilologie).
