NEW RELEASE: Klaus Vieweg: “Hegel, der Philosoph der Freiheit” (Beck, 2019)

We are glad to give notice of the release of the book Hegel, der Philosoph der Freiheit, by Klaus Vieweg (Beck, 2019).

From the publisher’s website:

Jedes Jahr am 14. Juli soll Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel ein Glas Champagner auf den Beginn der Französischen Revolution getrunken haben. Diese Revolution war das sein Leben und Denken prägende Ereignis. Das Grundmotiv der Freiheit durchzieht den gesamten Denk- und Lebensweg des bedeutendsten Philosophen des 19. Jahrhunderts. Zu Hegels 250. Geburtstag erscheint die erste umfassende deutschsprachige Biographie dieses Meisterdenkers seit 175 Jahren.
Nach Kindheit und Jugend in Stuttgart und Studium im benachbarten Tübingen ging der junge Philosoph zunächst als Hofmeister nach Bern und nach Frankfurt am Main. Die akademische Laufbahn begann mit einer Privatdozentur in Jena, wo Hegel eng mit dem einstigen Tübinger Kommilitonen Schelling zusammenarbeitete. Erst nach zwei Stationen in Franken ereilte ihn der Ruf nach Heidelberg. 1818 schließlich wurde Hegel Nachfolger auf dem Lehrstuhl von Johann Gottlieb Fichte im königlich-preußischen “Mittelpunkt” Berlin, wo er zum herausragenden Philosophen des Zeitalters aufstieg.
Der in Jena lehrende Philosoph Klaus Vieweg zeichnet in dieser Leben und Werk Hegels gleichermaßen würdigenden großen Biographie ein neues Bild des bedeutendsten Vertreters des deutschen Idealismus.

New Release: Francesca Iannelli, Federico Vercellone and Klaus Vieweg (eds.), “Hegel und Italien – Italien und Hegel” (Mimesis Verlag, 2019)

We are glad to give notice of the release of the book Hegel und Italien – Italien und Hegel: Geistige Synergien von Gestern und Heute, edited by Francesca Iannelli, Federico Vercellone and Klaus Vieweg (Mimesis Verlag, 2019).

From the publisher’s website:

Obschon Hegel eine Reise in den Süden beabsichtigte, unternahm er keine Grand Tour nach Italien. Er betrieb seine Erkundungen in den bedeutendsten europäischen Hauptstädten von Berlin über Wien bis Paris, wo er der italienischen Musik, der Oper und der Malerei begegnete. Ohne diese Reflexionen über die großen italienischen Werke eines Dante, Ariost, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raffael, Machiavelli, Rossini, ohne den Blick auf die Rezeption der in Deutschland entstandenen Schriften über Italien (Winckelmann, Goethe, Gries, Rumohr, Schlegel) können Herausbildung und Grundgedanken seiner Philosophie der Kunst nicht zureichend erschlossen werden. Ziel des Bandes ist es, einerseits Hegels Zugang zur Kultur Italiens zu rekonstruieren und andererseits die Rezeption seiner Philosophie in Italien zu analysieren und das heute noch lebendige hegelsche Erbe aufzuzeigen.

NEW RELEASE: D. Bubbio, A. De Cesaris, M. Pagano, H. Weslati (Eds.), “Hegel, Logic and Speculation” (Bloomsbury, 2019)

We are glad to give notice of the release of the book Hegel, Logic and Speculation, edited by Diego Bubbio, Alessandro De Cesaris, Maurizio Pagano, Hager Weslati (Bloomsbury, 2019).

From the publisher’s website:

This book offers new critical perspectives on the relationship between the notions of speculation, logic and reality in Hegel’s thought as basis for his philosophical account of nature, history, spirit and human experience. The systematic functions of logic and pure thought are explored in their concrete forms and processual progression from subjective spirit to philosophy of right, society, the notion of habit, the idea of work, art, religion and science. Engaging the relation between the Logic and its realisations, this book shows the internal tension that inhabits Hegel’s philosophy at the intersection of logical (conceptual) speculation and concrete (interpretative) analysis. The investigation of this tension allows for a hermeneutical approach that demystifies the common view of Hegel’s idealism as a form of abstract thought, while allowing for a new assessment of the importance of speculation for a concrete understanding of the world.

Convegno: “Verzweiflung als Sünde bei Søren Kierkegaard: theologisches oder philosophisches Problem?” (Padova, 17-19 ottobre 2019)

Siamo lieti di dare notizia del convegno Verzweiflung als Sünde bei Søren Kierkegaard: theologisches oder philosophisches Problem?, che si terrà presso l’Università degli Studi di Padova (Sala Seminari, Palazzo del Capitanio, Piazza Capitaniato 3) dal 17 al 19 ottobre 2019.

Riportiamo di seguito la presentazione e il programma dell’evento.

***

Il topos della disperazione, più di ogni altro tema in Kierkegaard, offre una versatilità interpretativa che lo rende oggetto di ricerca preminente in diversi ambiti. Queste giornate di studio si propongono di mostrarne la centralità in ambito teologico e filosofico. Questo topos diviene così specchio privilegiato del pensiero kierkegaardiano che, più di ogni altro ad esso contemporaneo, si muove tra teologia, filosofia e, anticipando i tempi, sottile indagine psicologica. In ambito teologico la disperazione viene interpretata come peccato: ribellione volontaria del singolo contro Dio o, per lo meno, rapporto incrinato del singolo con Dio. In ambito filosofico essa assume una sfumatura esistenziale come reazione del singolo di fronte all’assurdità dell’esistenza che, però, non deve condurre all’inazione, ma, al contrario, può essere punto di partenza di una ricerca di senso immanente ed ateistica. Gli interventi si configureranno sia come indagini esegetiche dei testi di Kierkegaard sia come analisi della storia della ricezione di questo topos centrale nel suo pensiero.

CFP: Special Issue of Logical Analysis and History of Philosophy: “Kant and Contemporary Epistemology”

We are glad to inform that a call for papers is now open for a special issue of “Logical Analysis and History of Philosophy”. The issue is titled Kant and Contemporary Epistemology, and guest editors are Sven Bernecker, Lisa Benossi and Jakob Ohlhorst.

Deadline for submissions is on March 15th, 2020.

Please find below more details on the call and on the special issue.

 

***

Few philosophers are discussed as frequently and intensively as Immanuel Kant. Discussions of Kant are commonplace in virtually all of the sub-disciplines of analytic philosophy with the exception of epistemology. Even bracketing differences in terminology, Kant’s epistemological ideas seem foreign to the contemporary discussion in a way that, for instance, the epistemological ideas of Aristotle, Descartes, and the British Empiricists do not. The goal of this special issue is to build bridges – or where such bridges exist, to reinforce them – between contemporary epistemology and Kantian philosophy.

Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Transcendental arguments, Strawson, Sellars, and McDowell;
  • Skepticism and Kant’s refutation of idealism;
  • Kant’s theory of Fürwahrhalten (assent);
  • Degrees of belief and other doxastic states;
  • Kant’s distinction between cognition and knowledge and his theory of knowledge;
  • Gettier-like cases and safety in Kant’s theory of assent;
  • Contemporary perspectives on transcendental idealism.

Invited contributions
The special issue will include essays by:

•   Robert Audi, University of Notre Dame

•   Jessica Leech, Kings College London

•   Mark Siebel, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg

Important dates
Submission deadline: March 15, 2020
Target publication date of the print edition: Spring-Summer 2022. Essays can be published online before this date.

How to submit
Please send your paper to KCELAHP@protonmail.com. Accompanied by an abstract of roughly 100 words written in English. Papers should generally be between 8.000-10.000 words including the bibliography. However, if the density and number of arguments justifies more than 10.000 words we are happy to consider longer pieces. We accept the following formats: WORD, WORD-Perfect, TEX. If you use Open Office please send your file in rich text format (*.rtf). Should your document contain many logical symbols or special characters including Greek letters etc., then please provide us also with a PDF version of your document. For more detailed instructions on formatting, please see here.

About the journal
Logical Analysis and History of Philosophy aims to provide an international forum for articles deploying the resources of modern logical analysis in dealing with historical philosophical texts. The topics discussed may encompass all areas and periods from the history of philosophy. However, some volumes have a thematic focus. The historical orientation of the articles and the use of logical resources (albeit not necessarily highly formal ones) as an interpretative method are central aspects of our project. We expect that the journal shed new light on classical texts, making them more fruitful in discussing the problems of contemporary philosophy. The works of the history of philosophy should thus not only be honored as historical documents, but first and foremost be taken seriously from a philosophical point of view.

CFA: Workshop “Metaphern, Symbole und Analogien in Kants kritischen Schriften” (LMU Munich, 25 Januar 2020)

We gladly announce that a Call for Abstracts has been opened for the workshop that will be held at the LMU München, on January 25th, 2020. The topic of the workshop will be Metaphern, Symbole und Analogien in Kants kritischen Schriften.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: November 10th, 2019.

Organisation: Dr. Manja Kisner and Larissa Wallner, M. A.

Below you can find the text of the call and the terms for submission of abstracts.

***

Kant greift in seinen kritischen Schriften regelmäßig auf Metaphern, Symbole und Analogien zurück und versucht so seine abstrakten philosophischen Thesen mit ihrer Hilfe zu veranschaulichen und sie dem Leser näher zu bringen. Doch darüber hinaus übernehmen in Kants Werken die stilistischen und rhetorischen Mittel teilweise auch eine bedeutende systematische Funktion, die nicht nur der bloßen Veranschaulichung dienen kann. Ziel des Workshops ist es, die Rolle der sprachlichen Figuren in Kants Schriften näher zu untersuchen und sich dabei insbesondere mit der Frage auseinanderzusetzen, ob die rhetorischen Mittel in Kants Philosophie auch eine dezidiert philosophische Bedeutung haben.

Keynote Vortrag: Prof. Dr. Karin de Boer (KU Leuven)

Der Workshop richtet sich an jüngere ForscherInnen in der Promotions- und Postdoc-Phase, die ihre Arbeit zu diesem Thema vorstellen und diskutieren möchten.

Wir bitten um Abstracts (im Umfang von max. 500 Wörter) für drei 30-minütige Vorträge (plus 30 Minuten Diskussion), die bis zum 10. November an Manja Kisner (Manja.Kisner@lmu.de) und Larissa Wallner (larissa.wallner@gmx.de) zu senden sind. Die Abstracts sollten keinen Hinweis auf den Verfasser enthalten. Der Name und die Affiliation des Verfassers erwähnen Sie bitte nur in der E-Mail. Die passenden Beiträge werden wir bis 20. November auswählen. Die Vorträge und die Abstracts können auf Deutsch oder auf Englisch sein.

Der Workshop wird vom LMUexcellent-Mentoring-Programm finanziert.

NEW RELEASE: Paul Giladi (ed.), “Responses to Naturalism. Critical Perspectives from Idealism and Pragmatism” (Routledge, 2019)

We are happy to give notice of the release of the book Responses to Naturalism: Critical Perspectives from Idealism and Pragmatism edited by Paul Giladi (Routledge, 2019).

From the the publisher’s website:

This volume offers critical responses to philosophical naturalism from the perspectives of four different yet fundamentally interconnected philosophical traditions: Kantian idealism, Hegelian idealism, British idealism, and American pragmatism. In bringing these rich perspectives into conversation with each other, the book illuminates the distinctive set of metaphilosophical assumptions underpinning each tradition’s conception of the relationship between the human and natural sciences. The individual essays investigate the affinities and the divergences between Kant, Hegel, Collingwood, and the American pragmatists in their responses to philosophical naturalism. The ultimate aim of Responses to Naturalism is to help us understand how human beings can be committed to the idea of scientific progress without renouncing their humanistic explanations of the world. It will appeal to scholars interested in the role idealist and pragmatist perspectives play in contemporary debates about naturalism.

***

In 2020 the international community of Hegel researchers celebrates two anniversaries: on the one hand the 250th birthday of G.W.F. Hegel, on the other hand, the 200th anniversary of the publication of The Philosophy of Right. These two anniversaries provide an excellent opportunity to discuss the main concept of Hegelian philosophy – freedom – in all its aspects. Not only in The Philosophy of Right, but consistently throughout his philosophical work, Hegel describes two moments of human existence as ”most deeply” his ”own”: thinking and freedom. Freedom of the self-consciousness, which already manifests itself as the negative freedom of thinking, able to abstract from all its objects, is described and analysed in Hegel’s philosophy in its various and complex manifestations as: formal-legal, moral, aesthetic, economic, ethical and civic freedom. According to Hegel, each form of freedom has its own right and one of the most important tasks of philosophy is to conceptualise the forms of this right of freedom. The constellations of freedom, right and thinking create the general conceptual framework for the Congress.

The 33rd International Hegel Congress takes place in Warsaw, the capital of Poland – one of the countries where an authoritarian regime was imposed after World War II. Because of a warped reading of Hegel, freedom was declared a mere affirmation of necessity. Because of that, in those times, in Central and Eastern Europe the image of Hegel was distorted, which led to an ideological abuse of his philosophy as one of the pillars of the undemocratic system. Paradoxically, this distorted picture of Hegelian philosophy was empowered by the popularity of Popper’s interpretation of it. Thirty years after the political change in Europe and fifteen years after Poland and many other countries from this region joined the EU, it is high time that the ideologically abused image of Hegel was finally corrected. The idea to focus on Hegel as a freedom thinker aims, therefore, to create an intellectual platform where representatives from West and East, North and South can meet to collectively reflect upon the social, political and legal challenges of our times. The philosophy of Hegel is a fitting starting point for such reflection, above all because it wants to be a philosophy of thinking – that is, rational – freedom. According to this conceptualisation, freedom, both in the individual and collective form, can only be established and maintained if it is inscribed in the extensive network of intersubjective relations, social practices and political institutions. Using the conceptual means of Hegel`s philosophy, we can formulate important and topical questions and, perhaps, also answers, for example on the role of the individual in the context of civil society`s institutions (such as family and corporations), the grounds and boundaries of its economic freedom, its relation to political orders. All this makes the work with the multi-faceted Hegelian theory of freedom an entirely current task, which can and should exceed the purely historical interpretative pattern.

Although at first glance the topic might appeal mainly to those researchers who deal with Hegel’s practical philosophy (his legal and political theory, political and social philosophy, and aesthetics), it is aimed at Hegel’s entire oeuvre. Therefore, we welcome presentations which take up various aspects of Hegel’s understanding of freedom both in his practical and theoretical philosophy. We put important questions up for debate: How is, generally, the relation between freedom and thinking to be understood? What role does the moment of freedom play in the structure of Hegelian logic? What constitutes the freedom of spirit, which seems to function as the inner motor of the successive forms of consciousness and knowledge inside The Phenomenology of Spirit? Is there freedom in nature – the “Other“ of spirit – or is it only in the sphere of culture and Bildung, as its very own element? In what sense can history be understood as the development of the consciousness of freedom? What are the anthropological grounds of human freedom? How does the freedom of the believer and the community of believers express itself within the philosophy of religion? What role does freedom play in the artistic work, according to Hegelian aesthetics? These and the other questions outline the broad fields of the forms of freedom that are revealed in Hegel’s complex work.

In addition to the general questions suggested above, the Congress also aims to discuss the specific, rich tradition of the Polish reception of Hegel’s philosophy, which is indebted to such personalities as Bronisław Trentowski, Karol Libelt or August Cieszkowski. This topic will be addressed in a separate section (held in memory of Marek J. Siemek). As part of it, a discussion will be held, which will explore the grounds and perspectives of the growing interest among young scientists in the potential of Hegelian philosophy.

The official languages of the Congress are English, German and French.
