Presented by

Professor Laurence Paul Hemming, Lancaster University

Until recently sex and gender difference has been thought of as irreducible. Recent developments in the understanding of personal identity have called into question this irreducibility, or that there are, or are only, two genders. Is sex and gender a matter of just two, and if not, who or what else needs to be included? How should these questions be asked, and by whom? What is their history, and what is their future?

Laurence Paul Hemming is a research professor jointly in Lancaster University's Philosophy, Politics and Religion Department, and the Lancaster University Management School, UK. He was formerly Dean of Research for one of the colleges of the University of London. He has published a number of books and translations, including Heidegger's Atheism (Notre Dame, 2002); Worship as a Revelation (Burnes & Oates 2008); Postmodernity's Transcending (Notre Dame, 2005); and Heidegger and Marx: A Productive Dialogue over the Language of Humanism (Northwestern, 2013). He is currently working on a translation of Ernst Jünger's 1932 text Der Arbeiter (The Worker), as well as a book on the relationship between love and power in antiquity and today.
