We are pleased to announce the launch of a new reading group focusing on Kant at London Metropolitan University (Room TM1-47, London Metropolitan University, North Campus, 166-220 Holloway Road, London N7 8DB). The group will meet every Thursdays 6-8 pm, from October 9th, 2014 until January 22nd, 2015.
The reading group is organised by the Contemporary Aristotelian Studies in Ethics & Politics (CASEP).
The focus of the meetings will be on Kant’s Critique of Judgement.
Below the official announcement:
Reading Group on Kant’s 3rd Critique
Contemporary Aristotelian Studies in Ethics & Politics (CASEP) reading group
Kant’s Critique of (the Power of) Judgement
Thursdays 6-8 pm, commencing October 9th, weekly until January 22nd.
Room TM1-47, London Metropolitan University, North Campus,
166-220 Holloway Road, London N7 8DB.
Over 14 weeks we will be reading Kant’s 3rd Critique in its entirety, along with the unpublished 1st Introduction, seeking to understand its place in the Kantian system as a whole, supposedly as a bridge between his philosophies of nature and freedom (epistemology and ethics), and examining its legacy in modern aesthetics, political and moral theory, and philosophy of science.
Those who wish to attend are asked to read the Preface and the (published) Introduction for the first week. We will be reading the book in English but consulting the German along the way. (No translation is stipulated, but I, at least, will be reading Pluhar’s.)
Thank you and best wishes,

Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, Course Leader BSc Social Science
