Conference: “Classical German Idealism and Phenomenology” (St. Petersburg, September 13-17)

We are pleased to announce the international conference on “Classical German Idealism and Phenomenology”, which will be held at the St. Petersburg State University (Russia), on September 13-17, 2015.



As follows from the name, the conference will be dealing with the thought of the main representatives of the classical German idealism in so far as it is connected with the phenomenological thought. The objectives of the conference include, among others, an attempt to make sense of the noteworthy parallelism in the development of the German idealism and phenomenology: from essentialism and subjective idealism to the problem of being and facticity. A special focus will be given to the possibility of making a productive use in phenomenology of the branch of idealism which was identified by Husserl as “Romantic idealism” (Hegel, Schelling). Remarkably, the founder of contemporary phenomenology himself did not deny the significance of this branch of idealism for phenomenology.

The event brings together more than 20 distinguished researchers from different countries.

Languages of the conference are English and German.

The conference is organized by the Journal ‘‘Horizon. Studies in Phenomenology’’ (Institute of Philosophy, St. Petersburg State University), with the participation of the Central-European Institute of Philosophy at the Charles University and the Institute of philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences (Prague, Czech Republic).
