Amsterdam Kant Conference 2024: Kantian Philosophy Today

13 and 14 June 2024, University of Amsterdam

Call for registrations

The University of Amsterdam will commemorate the 300th birth year of Immanuel Kant by organizing a conference dedicated to the question: what is the state of Kantian philosophy today? Over the last three centuries, Kant’s thought has proven to be a leading approach in various philosophical disciplines, from logic and epistemology to ethics and political philosophy. But what crucial questions in Kantian scholarship require special attention today? 

The conference will explore this question through two keynote lectures and four thematic panels organized around leading scholars in these fields. The panels will each open with a 30-minute introductory lecture by the main speaker, a 15-minute Q&A, three subsequent 15-minute presentations, and a final 30-minute Q&A.
