Below you can find the text of the call.


The aim of the planned anthology is to extend both the intensively pursued historical-exegetical and the present-oriented Classical German Philosophy research to provide it with a future dimension. The focus is not on an assessment of the future of historical research but on the question of the future of Kant’s, Jacobi’s, Reinhold’s, Fichte’s, Schelling’s, and Hegel’s theories and research programs. How can individual theories and research programs, such as those on pure reason, transcendental idealism or empirical realism, consciousness, and the faculties of mind, positively rational (speculative) thinking, the absolute idea, recognition, freedom, nature, the philosophy of law, be developed theoretically? Creative proposals for solutions based on own reflections and recognized problems, deficiencies or potentials of the theories and research programs, or influenced by objections and criticisms, as well as recent scientific and social developments and forecasts are invited. The editor leaves it to the authors to decide which path to propose—be it the transformation, revision, or conservation of Kant’s, Jacobi’s, Reinhold’s, Fichte’s, Schelling’s, and Hegel’s research programmatic assumptions.

Proposals for the theoretical development of concrete individual theories and research programs can be assigned to the following topics among others: Reason and Rationality, Metaphilosophy, Philosophy of Science, Truth and Knowledge, Idealism and Realism, Skepticism, Relativism, Perspectivism, Logic, System, Metaphysics, Language and Thought, (Inter)Subjectivity, Self-Consciousness, Consciousness, Space and Time, Body, Aesthetics, Ethics, Ecology and the Treatment of Animals, Art, Religion, Law and the Organization of the State, History, Nationalism and Globalization, Poverty, Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Neuroscience, Modernity and Postmodernity, Individual and Community.
