CFP: Models of Human and Divine Intellect in Kant and Hegel (Tübingen, February 16th-18th, 2017)

We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the workshop “Models of human and divine intellect in Kant and Hegel: Intersections between Transcendental Philosophy and Rational Theology”, which will take place from the 16th to 18th of February 2017 at the University of Tübingen.

The workshop aims to compare Kant’s and Hegel’s models of human and divine intellect. It departs from the hypothesis that their respective accounts of the ‘transcendental’ and ‘metaphysical’ deductions correlate with their conceptions of finite and infinite knowledge, modelled as human and divine intellect. The workshop will thus explore the systematic role assigned to concepts from traditional rational theology within the projects of transcendental logic and ontology.

Organizers invite contributions by PhD students in philosophy and related disciplines concentrating on the philosophical issues at stake. Preference is given to systematic, rather than historical-exegetical approaches.
