Studia Generalia

Open and free-of-charge public lectures at the University of Helsinki for friends of science, research and learning. The Studia Generalia lecture series in the autumn of 2023 focuses on freedom, its limits and definitions.

Freedom is one of the key values of the University: it is the foundation of our autonomy, creativity and responsibility. Finnish society and the ideal of democracy are also largely based on the idea of freedom. How is freedom visible and realised in everyday life? How is freedom defined? Where are its boundaries?

Information on the individual lectures will be published on this page soon.
