CFA: St Andrews Kant Reading Party 2018: “Kant and Rawls” (Angus, July 16-19, 2018)

We are glad to announce that a Call for Abstract for the St. Andrews Kant Reading Party on the topic “Kant and Rawls”, is open. The Conference will be held at the Burn in Angus on July 16-19, 2018.
Here below you can find the text of the call.

The reading party is an annually recurring academic retreat aimed at bringing together scholars of various backgrounds and career stages to discuss and compare the works of Immanuel Kant and another prominent philosopher. The eleventh edition of the event will be held at The Burn in Angus ( from July 16-19, 2018.

Thematically, the focus will be on the practical philosophy of Kant and John Rawls. The aim is to illuminate the complex relation between the two philosophers, and thereby to gain new and deeper insights into some of the important moral and political issues of our time.

The Kant Reading Party is open to all. It involves a combination of discussion sessions, which are based on pre-circulated readings, and paper sessions, which give graduate students a chance to present work relevant to the theme of the event.



We invite graduate students to submit anonymised abstracts of no more than 750 words by the 13th of May. Note that participation for students whose abstracts are selected for presentation is FREE.


Non-presenting participants are invited to register by the 31st of May. The estimated participation fees for non-presenting participants are £140 for faculty members and £70 for students.
