On October 25, 2016 the Academy of the Diocese Rottenburg-Stuttgart and Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft Darmstadt (WBG) organised a book presentation in honour of Alfons Auer on the occasion of the new edition of his work “Autonome Moral und christlicher Glaube” (“Autonomous Ethics and Christian Belief”). Speeches were given by Professor Dr. Dietmar Mieth (Tübingen/Erfurt) and Professor Dr. Stephan Goertz (Mainz).
Auer’s standard work has long been out of print and is now available again. The new edition contains a new introduction by Dietmar Mieth as well as a supplement to the 2nd edition of 1984 in which Auer deals with the controversial reception of his work.
