The latest issue has just been published: the fatum-Magazine – which follows the motto “Philosophie entdecken” (“discovering philosophy”) is published every six months. It is made by students who are associated to the Master’s course “Philosophy of Science and Technology”. The magazine meets the highest standards: just recently, the editorial team was awarded with the TUM’s Karl Max von Bauernfeind Medal.

In addition to the classics, the magazine also focuses on contemporary philosophy and shines a philosophical light on current developments in science and technology.

The current issue: Dialogue

In times of growing social divisions, successful dialogues are to be seen as especially valuable. But how to achieve a dialogue? What criteria are desirable for dialogues? What forms of dialogue are there – concerning humans, animals, or machines? What is solitude worth – and when should a dialogue be denied?
These and other questions are addressed by the current issue of fatum. The essays, reports, and literary contributions on the subject “Dialogue” were provided by TUM students, lecturers, and guest authors from all over the world.

The TUM’s philosophy magazine, initiated by students

Fatum is published at the Chair of Philosophy and Philosophy of Science – every six months and with a current circulation of 1,400. The magazine will be distributed free of charge during a “release tour” to the different TUM-sites (from January 11 to 17, 2017).

In addition, the magazine will also be available at several TUM libraries and other institutions, and the current issue can also be viewed online: www.fatum-magazin.de.

The editorial board appreciates feedback regarding the magazine and welcomes students who would like to join the team in the areas of editing, finance, illustration, or design.
