The University of Vienna and the Internationale Hegel-Gesellschaft e.V. are kindly inviting you to participate in the 30th International Hegel-Congress 2014 “Hegel’s response to Kant”, held April 23 – 26, 2014 in Vienna, Austria.
Hegel attributes the establishment of a philosophy of speculative reason to himself whereas Kant, according to Hegel, did not get beyond intellectual thinking. From this point of view, research is asking whether Kant’s or Hegel’s philosophy is more valid nowadays, but no consensus has emerged. From today’s perspective, Kant and Hegel are outstanding witnesses of the history of philosophy, but, however, of a history which entails a significant systematic power.
Hegel’s philosophy often refers to Kant implicitly and explicitly. Numerous contexts of Hegel’s thinking become more easily accessible when the Kantian subtext is revealed. But also, Hegel’s speculative thinking is useful to discover features of a speculative thinking in Kant’s works, which one would not have expected. Elaborating Hegel’s references to Kant in order to gain a new understanding of Kant’s philosophy is a main goal of the 30th International Hegel Congress of the International Hegel-Society and the University of Vienna.
The official languages of the congress are English, German and French.
