Conference Announcement "Kant's Lectures on Political Philosophy (Naturrecht Feyerabend)”
University of Groningen, 14 -16 October 2022
We are pleased to invite you to the conference "Kant's Lectures on Political Philosophy (Naturrecht Feyerabend)" to be held at the University of Groningen from October 14th to October 16th, 2022. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers interested in Kant’s political philosophy of the 1780s and/or its relation to other aspects of his work. The Feyerabend lectures are the only transcript of Kant’s course on natural law, stemming from the summer of 1784 as he was writing the Groundwork. These lectures have been neglected until very recently despite their importance as Kant’s only in-depth discussion of political philosophy from the decade of the three Critiques.
The talks of the conference will be collected in a forthcoming book, Kant's Lectures on Political Philosophy: A Critical Guide, edited by Fred Rauscher (Cambridge UP, 2023). The event is organized by the research group "Kant, Kantianism, and Morality" (University of Groningen) and supported by the Dutch Research Council (NWO).
