Ohne dialektische Kunst ist keine wissenschaftliche Philosophie!

Schelling’s assertion brilliantly highlights the concept of dialectic’s central significance within Classical German Philosophy. Subjected to thorough scrutiny by modern scholars, particularly within Kantian and Hegelian studies, dialectic continues to stir lively discussions about its role and importance.

Beginning with Kant, the term ‘dialectic’ transitions from a mere method or art of debate, as held by Plato and Aristotle, to signify a fundamental operation intrinsic to reason itself. In the Kantian framework, ‘dialectic’ acquires a dual nature: it represents both reason’s propensity for self-contradiction as well as its critical reflection on these contradictions’ origins, marking a crucial juncture in the Critique of Pure Reason.

Fichte’s works, though sparingly mentioning ‘dialectic’, intrinsically adopt a dialectical approach. This is particularly discernible in his synthetic procedure, showcased in the formulation of the three fundamental principles of the Wissenschaftslehre that synthesize the dichotomy between the Self and the not-Self.

It is with Schelling that the label ‘dialectical’ is applied to such processes, a characterization later endorsed by Hegel. Henceforth, the notion of dialectic became inextricably linked to philosophy’s scientific endeavour. Hegel carried this idea to its full development, albeit his treatment of this term is not free from ambiguities. In the Enzyklopädie, Hegel, paralleling Schelling, declares dialectic to be the very essence of all genuine scientific inquiry. Yet, he also characterizes it as the animating principle of all dynamism, life, and genuine action, hence presenting dialectic in a dual light.

While we anticipate the majority of contributions to this conference to focus on Kant, Fichte, Schelling, and Hegel, our goal is to broaden the dialogue to encompass the full spectrum of classical German philosophy. We are eager to consider novel interpretations of dialectic, and its historical impact on 20th and 21st-century philosophical trends and encourage the examination of the concept of dialectic in the works of lesser-known philosophers.

We also intend to publish the contributions.

International Conference: “Hegelian Perspectives on the Philosophy of Nature and the Environment” (Coimbra, 23-24 May 2024)

We are glad to give notice of the international conference Hegelian Perspectives on the Philosophy of Nature and the Environment, which will take place on May 23th-24th, 2024, at the University of Coimbra.

The event is organized by Diogo Ferrer (Universidade de Coimbra) and Christian Krijnen (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam).

Please find below the description and program of the conference, which can also be downloaded here.

Description

The upcoming 2024 conference, Hegelian Perspectives on the Philosophy of Nature and the Environment, will offer a historically informed platform for discussing crucial contemporary issues in the philosophy of the environment and nature. These issues will be approached through systematic or historical-philosophical methodologies, interpretation of Hegel’s texts, and comparative studies with other authors. The conference will delve into specific problems of environmental ethics, such as how to expand ethical considerations to encompass the relationship between human beings and nature, how to establish an ethics of care and forethought, and how ethics interrelate with metaphysical issues. These metaphysical concerns include the conceptual foundations of knowledge of nature, the ontological and moral status of sentient living beings, the organic relationship between living beings and their environment, and the Earth as an organism. Anthropological aspects can also be explored, such as the inherent embodiment of humans, the concept of “second nature” and its relationship to nature in the strict sense, the dialectic of means and ends in technology, and the overall ethical, political, and conceptual implications of technology.

New Release: Matthew Nini, “Fichte in Berlin. The 1804 Wissenschaftslehre” (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2024)

We are glad to give notice of the release of the volume Fichte in Berlin. The 1804 Wissenschaftslehre by Matthew Nini (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2024).

The table of contents is available at this link.

From the publisher’s website:

When the celebrated German philosopher Johann Gottlieb Fichte lost his position at the University of Jena and moved to Berlin, it looked as if his career was over. In 1799 Berlin had no university, and Fichte was consigned to lecturing in his home.

In Fichte in Berlin Matthew Nini breaks with scholarly consensus, arguing it was there that Fichte finally reached maturity, and the only way to understand Fichte’s mature philosophy is to perform it for oneself. The book focuses on the philosopher’s 1804 lectures on the Wissenschaftslehre – an untranslatable neologism for his theories on the pursuit of insight – claiming that they are one of the most exemplary versions of the philosophical project that Fichte reconfigured some seventeen times throughout his life. While the 1804 lectures offer a more robust approach, they remain faithful to the insight at the heart of the original philosophy. Fichte’s work always emphasized the practical over the theoretical, and his 1804 work goes even further: to think with Fichte is to bring one’s own philosophy to life. Nini guides the reader step by step through the complex arguments Fichte made in 1804 and goes on to examine some of his other works produced in their wake, arguing that Fichte’s output from 1804 to 1806, his first Berlin period, forms an organic whole.

 

With the kind permission of the author and the publisher, we share with our readers the Preface and Introduction to the volume.
