ONLINE CONFERENCES: “Language and Aesthetic Judgment in Kant” (5-6 July 2021)

We are glad to give notice of the Online Conference Language and Aesthetic Judgment in Kant, that will be held on 5-6 July, 2021. The event is organized by Johannes Haag and Moran Godess-Riccitelli and will take place on Zoom.

Below you can find more information and the conference program.


The conference hosts contributions on various connections between aesthetic experience, judgment, language, conceptuality, expressivism, hermeneutics, and communicability in Kant. In so doing, we seek to broaden and enrich existing accounts of aesthetic judgment and to stress its significance for our capacity to reorder certain aspects of experience and to exert meaning also on things beyond empirical nature.
