Building on Kant’s work, but also strongly criticizing the dualisms that underlie it, the philosophers within German Idealism sought to conceptualize the internal unity between human freedom and nature. Because of the systematic and interdisciplinary nature of these attempts, German Idealist thought seems to be preeminently suited to address contemporary questions about our (distorted) relation to nature. The purpose of the symposium is therefore to explore the way in which transcendental and speculative idealism can offer insights into this relation. The symposium welcomes contributions that consider the concept of nature from the perspective of German Idealist philosophy in a broad sense. Topics could be, but are certainly not limited to:
  • Agency and nature
  • Human action and nature
  • The ontology of nature
  • The relation between the concept of ‘second’ nature and nature
  • Climate justice within the rule of law
  • Technology, instrumental reason, and freedom
Presentations will take 30 min. + 15 min discussion. In case you would like to give a presentation, we happily invite you to submit a 300-word abstract to Bram van Steen a.l.d.vansteen@gmail.com before 24.09.2023.

SYMPOSIUM

The Concept of Nature in German Idealism

When: Friday November 24, 2023

Where: Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, De Boelelaan 1105, tba

Organizer: OZSW Study Group Classical German Idealism and its Relevance / Klassiek Duits Idealisme en haar Actualiteit

When Immanuel Kant, in his Critique of Judgement, takes on the task of throwing a bridge between the “great gulf” that separates the domain of freedom from the domain of nature, he addresses a philosophical problem that becomes one of the central themes within the German Idealist tradition. Building on Kant’s work, but also strongly criticizing the dualisms that underlie it, the philosophers within German Idealism sought to conceptualize the internal unity between human freedom and nature. Because of the systematic and interdisciplinary nature of these attempts, German Idealist thought seems to be preeminently suited to address contemporary questions about our (distorted) relation to nature. The purpose of the symposium is therefore to explore the way in which transcendental and speculative idealism can offer insights into this relation.

The symposium welcomes contributions that consider the concept of nature from the perspective of German Idealist philosophy in a broad sense. Topics could be, but are certainly not limited to:

  • Agency and nature
  • Human action and nature
  • The ontology of nature
  • The relation between the concept of ‘second’ nature and nature
  • Climate justice within the rule of law
  • Technology, instrumental reason, and freedom

Presentations will take 30 min. + 15 min discussion. In case you would like to give a presentation, we happily invite you to submit a 300-word abstract to Bram van Steen a.l.d.vansteen@gmail.com before 24.09.2023.
