Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
This conference will be the first one devoted solely to the topic of the status of non-human animals within Kant’s philosophy. The conference will explore the place of animals in Kant’s Pre-Critical and Critical writings, and with regard to Kant’s epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and natural science.
Topics to be examined will include:
- animal cognition (especially animal sensations and spatial representation) and the implications of thinking about animals for Kant's account of human cognition.
- duties to animals
- the role of animals in Kant’s biology;
- the contrast with animals in Kant’s anthropology.
Contact: Professor Lucy Allais (Lucy.Allais@wits.ac.za).
