“The light dove, cleaving the air in its free flight, and feeling its resistance, might imagine that its flight would be even easier in empty space.” (Kant, CPR, A5/B8)

This online seminar, convening on Zoom, is intended to create a platform where junior and senior researchers can share their ideas, receive support and feedback, and create new bonds. In principle, the seminar will take place every two weeks from October to December and from February to June. The formats include individual talks with or without pre-circulated papers, book sessions, and workshops based on calls for papers. In all cases, there will be ample time for discussion.
