The 31st International Conference of the International Hegel Society (Bochum, May 17-20, 2016)

We are pleased to announce the 31st International Hegel-Kongress of the International Hegel-Society (Internationale Hegel-Gesellschaft). The event will take place from 17th  to 20th  of May, 2016 in the Humanities Building (GA) on the Campus of the Ruhr-University Bochum.

Conference’s title will be «Know thyself – Anthropological Perspectives» / «Erkenne dich selbst – Anthropologische Perspektiven» and will be devoted to considering the perspectives on the “genuine reality of human being” opened by Hegel’s philosophy and to gauging both the extent to which they remain convincing and the respects in which they seem problematic or subject to renewal. At issue is the entirety of Hegel’s philosophy of mind and the resources it provides for philosophical anthropology. We welcome talks that focus on human beings, rather than merely on “the subject”. New approaches to anthropological aspects in Hegel’s logic and philosophy of nature are equally encouraged. Especially up for discussion, however, is the part of the Encyclopedia to which Hegel himself gave the title “Anthropology” and to which he devoted the recently edited lecture courses. In traversing this passageway between the philosophy of nature and the philosophy of mind, Hegel formulated insights into human life (including its pathologies) whose full significance we are still far from having exhausted.
