    Submission deadline:November 1, 2022

    Dates of meeting: September 8–13, 2024

    Location: Bonn, Germany

    The 14th International Kant Congress will be organized and hosted by the University of Bonn and the Kant Society (Germany). In celebration of the 300th anniversary of Kant’s birth, and in view of the political developments of our time, the theme of the congress will be “Kant’s Project of Enlightenment”. In 2024, the city of Bonn will also be celebrating the 75th anniversary of the German Constitution, which was enacted into law in Bonn on May 23, 1949, as the Grundgesetz of the Federal Republic of Germany.

    The Enlightenment emphasized the moral autonomy of the individual and the inalienable political rights of all human beings. Its aim was to overcome deeply engrained prejudices in religion, the state, and society and to defend the principles of rational criticism and emancipation, all while advocating a scientific orientation to the world. The ideas of the Enlightenment are understood to be universal: All human beings are to be considered equal, regardless of gender, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. Kant remains one of the most important representatives of the European Enlightenment and one of its central contributors.

    Submission deadline:November 1, 2022

    Dates of meeting: March 31 and April 1, 2023

    Location:University of Notre Dame

    This colloquium on the “Affirmative” interpretation of Kant’s philosophy of religion was inspired by the question as to what extent Kant’s moral vision affirms religion without rendering it irrelevant.

    Featured speakers include Stephen Palmquist, John Hare, Lawrence Pasternack, Jacqueline Marina, and Chris Firestone.

    Papers are welcome on any topic relevant to the task of understanding Kant’s theory of religion, but we are especially interested in papers related to these five themes that have been the subject of debate between different affirmative interpreters:

    1. What is the role of history in religion and theology? What is its relationship with Kant’s view of reason?

    2. Does Kant’s approach to theology and religion align itself solely with Christianity or is it also useful for interpreting other religious traditions?

    3. Is there a perennial conflict between theologians and philosophers, and, if so, how should that conflict impact the way we interpret Kant’s theory of religion? How does Kant’s famous claim, that he sought out the limits to knowledge in order to “make room for faith,” impact this conflict?

    4. Does Kant allow room for us to talk meaningfully about God? That is, how apophatic or cataphatic is Kant’s religious epistemology?

    5. Are there two distinct experiments in Kant’s Religion? If so, where are they located in the text and how can interpreters best distinguish between them? If not, then what does Kant mean by “zweiten Versuch” in the second edition preface of the Religion?


    Please forward abstracts of 250-500 words and any inquiries relating to the colloquium itself to The deadline for submitting abstracts is November 1, 2022.

    This colloquium has been made possible through a research fellowship provided to Meredith Trexler Drees by The Center for Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame.
