Call for Submissions

  • 06 Oct 2022 9:20 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

    Submission Deadline: January 1st, 2023

    Date of Meeting: March 1st-3rd, 2023

    Location: Online

    With the upcoming tricentennial of Kant’s birth in 2024, the time is right to look at the Kant’s legacy in and relevance for the 21st century philosophy. That Kant’s philosophy has maintained interest of scholars ever since its inception is sufficiently clear. However, the question of just how exactly and to what extent Kant is important in today’s philosophy bears repeated revisit and continuous exploration.

    We are pleased to announce an online three-day conference, organized by the Institute of Philosophy and Department of Philosophy (University of Belgrade), aimed at pursuing the question of whether and how Kant can help us advance debates in a number of contemporary issues. In recent years, there has been a renewed interest in the ways in which Kant’s philosophy can contribute to contemporary debates in metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, ethics, and political philosophy. While the latter two areas have been continuously explored from Kantian perspective and are still of exceptional importance within discussions of normative ethics, meta-ethics or applied ethics, as well as in political philosophy in the form of debates about Republicanism, international relations and more, the possibilities for reintegrating Kant within contemporary discussions in metaphysics, epistemology or philosophy of science have only recently come into sharper focus.

    Keynote speakers are: Luigi Caranti, Andrew Chignell, Gabriele Gava, Dietmar Heidemann, Thomas Land, Jessica Leech, Michael Lewin.

    Some of the topics may be, but are in no way exhausted by the following list:

    - The status of space and time

    - Contemporary debates on modality

    - Relation between the mental and the physical

    - Whether metaphysical claims have truth-value

    - Epistemic contextualism

    - Knowledge-first approach/perception-first approach

    - Evidentialism, meta-evidentialism and coherentism

    - Recent theories of rationality

    - Theories of action

    - Rationality of perception

    - Probabilistic knowledge

    - Status of natural laws

    - Scientific realism and anti-realism

    - Science/pseudoscience

    We invite submissions of 800-1000 words. Files should be sent in .doc, .docx or .pdf formats and prepared for double-blind review. Each talk should be about 25 minutes long, with additional 10 minutes being allotted for discussion.

    Submissions and questions can be sent to: kant21st@gmail.com. Further information can be found at: https://philevents.org/event/show/100778.

    We are considering a publication of an edited volume of conference papers. More information tba.

    Submission deadline: February 28, 2023

    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.
