About the topic

This course is a follow-up to the previous Autumn School ‘Beyond the Canon’, held at Nijmegen in 2020. Studying the history of philosophy is an interpretative effort resulting in a wide array of perceptions. By constantly questioning these perceptions we attempt to arrive at an ever more sophisticated understanding of the history of philosophy. One of the more interesting challenges presented by this effort concerns the way in which the authors we study perceived their own work the more so as these self-perceptions have become integrated in the general understanding of the history of philosophy.

Aim / objective

To acquire an informed understanding of the way in which our perception of the history of philosophy is dependent on the self-perception of some of the key authors that make up the philosophical canon.
