Honorary doctor Philipp Blom: an off-road historian
When:20 May 2019

Before we met, historian and philosopher Philipp Blom was told that he would be interviewed about his work and mission.

Like climate change, for example.’ But you could say that is a mission, right? ‘No,’ he assures me. ‘History is just such a fantastic discipline – and important, because it has a bearing on life today. I like to find patterns in history and to investigate whether there are any constants that apply not only to the Middle Ages or the seventeenth century, but to human existence in general.’
