Postgraduate workshop on Kant and German Idealism

University of Warwick – June 26, 2015 (Room TBC)

In the contemporary literature the critique of Kant in German Idealism has again received increased attention. Especially Hegel’s critique of Kant has been the subject of reconstructions in books such as Sally Sedgwick’s “Hegel’s Critique of Kant” or Bob Stern’s “Hegel, Kant and the Structure of the Object”. Our postgraduate workshop is supposed to bring together the most recent and promising research by graduate students on Kant and his reception in German Idealism. In the course of a day we will discuss Kant as well as the revived criticisms of the German Idealists. A special focus will be on the theoretical philosophy of Kant and the ways in which German Idealists challenge it.

Confirmed keynote speakers:

Stephen Houlgate (University of Warwick)

Andree Hahmann (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen)

Papers are invited from graduate students working on Kant and/or German Idealism. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • Kant’s critique of metaphysics and its return with German Idealism.

  • The distinction between theoretical and practical reason.
