Call for papers

Multilateral Kant Colloquium - 8th Edition
University of Catania – Catania (Italy) - October 11-13, 2018

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. Some of the keynotes in this edition will be Professors Paul Guyer, Pauline Kleingeld, Robert Louden, Bernd Doerflinger, Heiner Klemme,  Alessandro Pinzani, Mario Caimi, Lea Ypi, Luigi Caranti. 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. Previous editions took place in Italy (“Kant Today”, Verona and Padua), Portugal (“What is Man? – Was ist der Mensch?”, Lisbon 2009), Germany (“Kant and Antinomical Thinking”, Mainz 2011; and “Kant and His Critics”, Halle 2017), Brazil (“Kant and the Metaphors of Reason”, Tiradentes 2013), Spain (“Kant’s Short Writings – Kleine Schriften”, Madrid 2014), and the United States (“Kant on Violence, Revolution, and Progress”, Hempstead, NY 2016). 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.

The Colloquium is addressed to scholars at an advanced stage of their career as well as junior researchers with an interest in Kantian philosophy. Participants will find the ideal context for high quality feedback on their ongoing work and challenging discussions. Over three days, the conference will be structured around 10 invited talks and presentations selected through this call for papers.
