Padua Kant Workshop: Concepts, intuitions and ‘Manifest Reality’

Keynote speakers: Lucy Allais (UC San Diego) Anselmo Aportone (Università Tor Vergata di Roma) Dietmar Heidemann (Université de Luxembourg) Sebastian Rödl (Universität Leipzig)

Workshop description:

The PhD Seminar “Letture Kantiane” organizes an International Workshop on the recent volume “Manifest Reality: Kant’s Realism and his Idealism” by Lucy Allais. The workshop will take place on September 12-13, 2017, at the department of Philosophy, Sociology, Pedagogy and Applied Psychology (FISPPA) of the University of Padua. The aim of the workshop is to discuss two crucial problems in the interpretation of Kant’s philosophy, namely the relation between idealism and realism and the problem of non-conceptual contents, through the reference to Allais’ book.

We invite PhD and Postdoctoral students to present their own contribution for the selection.
