Baer Presents at Reichenau Island, Germany

Eugen Baer, professor of philosophy, recently traveled to the island Reichenau on the Lake of Constance in Germany to present a two hour talk on “Joseph and his Brothers” to an interfaith audience of Jews and Christians. The lecture was sponsored by the Friedrich Weinreb Foundation of Zurich, Switzerland.

Baer is the author of “Medical Semiotics” (1988) and the chapter “Editing the Text of a Disease: Semiotic and Ethical Aspects of Therapeutic Genetic Engineering” in “Biosemiotics: The Semiotic Web,” edited by Thomas Sebeok and Jean Umiker-Sebeok (1992).
