Topic areas


In the second half of the nineteenth century several representatives of the then-rising neo-Kantian movement began to take an interest in Schiller’s work. Schiller was already regarded as a great writer, nonetheless, his reappraisal as a philosopher – and, more specifically, Kantian philosopher – began in this period. Among the neo-Kantians who dealt with Schiller’s philosophy there were paramount figures of this movement, such as Kuno Fischer, Friedrich Albert Lange, Wilhelm Windelband, Jonas Cohn, Rudolf Eucken, Hans Vaihinger, Bruno Bauch, Karl Vorländer and Ernst Cassirer (to name a few).

The International Conference “The neo-Kantian Reception of Schiller” will invite renowned scholars from around the world to discuss and analyze the various ways in which neo-Kantian thinkers interpreted and assimilated Schiller’s ideas, contributing to his recognition as an important figure in German philosophy.

We invite Ph.D. students, researchers and scholars to submit abstracts for presentations on the topic of the Conference. Proposals dealing with the reception of Schiller by lesser-known representatives of the neo-Kantian movements (such as Bruno Bauch, Karl Vorlaender, etc.) are particularly welcome.


Abstracts must be submitted by email to [email protected] after 31 January 2024 and before 30 November 2024.
The proposal must be submitted as a .doc or .docx file labeled with the surname of the submitter (e.g. surname.docx).
At the top of the document, please include the following information: title of presentation, full name, email address, university degree, affiliation, and academic position you will hold at the time of the Conference.
Abstracts must be no longer than 2000 words (excluding footnotes and references) and must be submitted in English.
After submitting your abstract, you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive an email confirmation within two weeks, please resubmit your abstract to [email protected].

The submission of an abstract constitutes a commitment by the author to give a presentation at the Conference if accepted.
