2021-2022 PADOVA RESEARCH SEMINAR

This year’s research seminar of the Doctoral School in Philosophy of the University of Padova is devoted to a close reading of G.W. F. Hegel’s Lectures on The Philosophy of History. Each session of the seminar focuses on a specific section of Hegel’s text. A moderator introduces the most relevant topics, arguments, and problems presented by the Lectures.

The following meetings have already taken place:

Oct 19th, 2021: Luca Illetterati introduced this year’s research seminar.

Nov 9th, 2021: Luca Illetterati presented Philosophical history, causal history.

HEGELPDPRIZE

The prize is awarded to high-quality scientific contributions recently appeared in the field of Hegelian studies.

The hegelpd-prize 2022 goes to Gregory S. Moss’s volume Hegel’s Foundation Free Metaphysics: The Logic of Singularity (Routledge, 2020). Gregory S. Moss will be invited to Padova to present his work and to discuss it with the members of the research group at hegelpd and everyone who is interested.

Like last year, the committee awarded a mention to an article. This year’s mention for the hegelpd–prize goes to Susanne Lettow, “Re-Articulating Genealogy. Hegel on Kinship, Race and Reproduction”, published online by Cambridge University Press in March 2019 (later appeared in Hegel Bulletin, 42 (2), 2021, 256-276).  

In addition, the members of hegelpd decided to award a posthumous honorary mention to Geografie dell’altrove. Studi su Hölderlin (Marsilio, 2020), by Luigi Reitani, who passed away last October. His precious interdisciplinary work on Hölderlin constitutes a benchmark for classical German Philosophy studies, and hegelpd intends in this way to pay tribute to him and his memory.
