Conference: “Philosophy of Right: Kant, Fichte, Hegel” (16–18 July, Leipzig)

We are happy to announce that the conference “Philosophy of Right: Kant, Fichte, Hegel” will be held at the University of Leipzig on July 16th–18th 2018.

This conference is the eighth in a series of Chicago/Leipzig summer Graduiertentagungen. It explores the different conceptions of the Philosophy of Right proposed by Kant, Fichte and Hegel. Each of them, in different ways, grounds the idea of right in the autonomy of practical reason. The keynote speakers at the conference will be Martin Stone, Katrin Flikschuh, Rafeeq Hasan, Frederick Neuhouser, and Japa Pallikkathayil. The other conference presentations will be by graduate students from the Departments of Philosophy at the University of Chicago and the University of Leipzig.
The conference is organized by Sebastian Rödl (Leipzig), Dawa Ometto (Leipzig) and Matthias Haase (Chicago).
