Hegel's response to Kant - 30th International Hegel-Congress 2014

  • Conference Call
  • 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.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    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.
