Exploratory Workshop organized by the Department of Theology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki together with the German General Consulate of Thessaloniki, the Goethe Institut of Thessaloniki and the Hermann Cohen Society.

Cohen's studies will reinforce the links of the past with the present, erasing the ignorance of today; thanks to his cosmopolitan, open and profound thought and philosophy, Cohen's studies will also contribute to overpass the barriers and the fear of the other» (prof. A. Ziaka).
