The International Symposia on Classical German Philosophy were initiated by the German/Latin-American Research and Doctoral Network in Philosophy (FILORED), a cooperative network of the Fern Universität in Hagen (Germany), the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany), the Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg (Germany), the Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina (Argentina), the Universidad Diego Portales (Chile), the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (Chile), the Universidade Federal do Ceará (Brazil), the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil), the Universidade Federal de São Carlos (Brazil), the Universidad Nacional de Colombia (Colombia), the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana (Mexico) and the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (Peru).

The objective of the Symposium will be to discuss the actuality of the epistemology of the philosophical movement from Kant to Hegel. That topic will be examined by means of an exegetical and conceptual analysis of the ideas of the authors of that movement (especially Kant, Fichte, Schelling and Hegel) as well as an analysis of their historical sources and their later appropriation (especially by Marxism, neo-Kantianism, post-structuralism and neo-pragmatism).
