Kant’s Critical System | Call for Papers

posted in: Call for papers, Event

The Aesthetic Division at the Department of Philosophy, University of Rijeka and the Croatian Society for Analytic Philosophy are running a conference dedicated to the philosophical legacy of Immanuel Kant. The conference is organised as part of the research project Aesthetic Education through Narrative Art and its Relevance for the Humanities.

The conference will take place at the University of Rijeka, on November, 25th and 26th 2024.

Keynote speakers

Lara Ostaric (Temple University)
Gabriele Gava (University of Torino)

Conference aim

The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars working in any domain of Kant’s philosophy in order to explore the invaluable and incalculable legacy of Kant’s opus and its impact on the development of analytic philosophy. The organisers are interested in exploring the intersection of Kant’s three Critiques in order to understand how they complement, or contradict, each other, and to analyze the systematicity in Kant’s philosophical thinking. They also invite papers that deal with less prominent elements of Kant’s system, such as his anthropology or his theory of education, in order to explore his influence on the development of humanities, its themes, methodologies and aims. Furthermore, they are interested in exploring how Kant’s views impact contemporary scholars’ work in areas such as aesthetic education, cognitive sciences, moral and political philosophy and psychology.

The conference will also feature an Author Meets Critics section on Lara Ostarić’s recent book, The Critique of Judgment and the Unity of Kant’s Critical System (Cambridge University Press, 2023). If you are interested in participating (with a paper), please indicate this in your email.

Call for papers

The organisers invite submissions for 30-minute presentations, followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
