The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers interested in Kant’s political philosophy of the 1780s and/or its relation to other aspects of his work. The Feyerabend lectures are the only transcript of Kant’s course on natural law, stemming from the summer of 1784 as he was writing the Groundwork. These lectures have been neglected until very recently despite their importance as Kant’s only in-depth discussion of political philosophy from the decade of the three Critiques.
