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.
