CFP: Kant and the Contemporary World: Philosophy, Science, Politics

 

Call for abstracts

Abstracts are welcome for the 8th Edition of the Multilateral Kant Colloquium “Kant and the Contemporary World: Philosophy, Science, Politics,” to be held at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Catania, October 11-13, 2018. The theme is to be intended in the broadest possible sense, as involving any aspect of Kant’s philosophy with an impact on issues debated in contemporary philosophy and science, as well as relevant for the most pressing political problems of our time.

Scholars from all over the world will be involved in presentations and discussions of the most up-to-date research on Kant’s philosophy. With the support of the Società Italiana di Studi Kantiani, the conference is part of an annual initiative started in 2008 by an international group of scholars keen on promoting informed debate on the latest developments of Kant scholarships. The current edition aims at highlighting the relevance of Kantian thought with respect to the contemporary world, which becomes increasingly acknowledged in a wide number of issues crosscutting both the theoretical and practical sides of his work. read more...
